Here we are into November… we’ve only had one “actual freeze” where the temperature fell below the 0C (32F) and that was enough to bring the season pretty to an end. But what a great season it was. As I must have said 100 times by now, that added amount of sunlight made such a difference to the growth and color. Not that they didn’t look good before, they did!!! But this years, they looked awesome!
Here are few pictures taken today. Many have the pitchers are showing freeze damage, yet others are still looking pretty nice.
The gentiana autumnalis is still blooming thought!
The plant on the left is one of my “experiments”. One parent was an AF courtii (psit x purpurea) and the other was an AF mitchelianna (purp x leuco). The hope was to get a purpy looking thing, which it is, but with a lot more white in the upper pitchers! Maybe I’ll move it to a more open area next season and see how it does.
The leucophylla is still looking good, and this little “pinkish” mitcheliana is still hangin in there.
It time to start thinking about getting the ‘ol bogs ready for winter! I will likely be tackling that in the next little while… my hope is to have them all prepared and ready to covered with pine needles by the end of the month.
