Hey guys, all my sarracenia are waking up buy my Purpureas are late. Is there a reason why. They took temperatures down to 5 degrees Fahrenheit outside in January and they where covered in burlap and frost fabric at the sides of the pot to protect the roots. And they are waking up for the springtime and making flowers.

They take cues from nature on when to wake up, so it's doing it at exactly the right time for it. Plus, purps are a little slower, so they're always fashionably late as compared to other Sarrs.

Yeah, they are flowering size plants. This plant flowered last late July and mid August. They usually flower in May and June.

Sarracenia purpurea ssp. purpurea isn't fooled by a little sign of spring. Being a northern plant, it's all too familiar with late-season cold snaps. I'm not surprised that it held back for a few more weeks just to make sure that winter was over. Mine are lagging noticeably behind my ssp. venosa plants.

For comparison here are some in a local bog earlier this week. SWMichigan approx zone 6. No new growth yet, only last years pitchers. Also I only took pics of the best looking ones most were pretty rough :D We are having a slow spring so far
