I had an incredible blooming this year. I think that literally every plant except the babies had blooms. It was a great site. However, like everything else this too shall pass.
Unlike in their natural habitats, Sarracenia up here in zone6b tend to bloom pretty much all at the same time. The only plants that don’t overlap are S. psittacina and S. flava, otherwise there is pretty much a continuos show. Whats really cool is that is you like random hybrids, with so many of the species in bloom at the same time, you are guaranteed to get some very cool stuff. My friend Jay is one of those guys. He’s got some of the most unique Sarracenia hybrids I have ever seen, all the result of random open pollination of his outdoor bogs.
Me on the other hand… I don’t care that much. Soooo….. Off they come. The production of seed takes energy from the plant. Well realistically, probably not that much, but they aren’t that attractive after the petals fall and Since I don’t want the seeds I cut the flowers as soon as they drop their petals.
