One of my reasons of being in the FlytrapCare forum is to learn more about Sundews. My growing zone is 6b, and with that, I have two questions:

1. What type of sundews can easily grow in my growing zone?
2. Is it very important for a sundew to grow outside? Because sometimes the weather in my location is very random and I'm not sure its good to have them outside besides summer only.

Thanks for replying! :D

Drosera filiformis (from the New Jersey pinelands), intermedia, and rotundifolia will have no problems growing outside in your zone.
