Here's is some supplemental information for my BX 295 donations. I'm thrilled to be able to offer some new things to the BX. Dennis in Cincy ------- The first three selections are geophytic insectivorous plants native to S.E. USA (or hybrids derived from native species). They require full sun, constant moisture, and nutrient deficient media. Seeds tend to be hydrophobic. So sow them in sphagnum moss, or direct sow into your carnivorous plant bog bed. Sarracenia are extremely cold hardy, typically down to Z4. Sarracenia growth habit is strikingly similar to Irises. They're rhizomatous and clump-forming. If you're familiar with Irises, you'll easily be able to understand Sarracenia. Sarracenia 'Red Rocket' - Open pollinated, growing near S. leucophylla and S. flava var. rugellii. 'Red Rocket' is a cross between S. flava x S. purpurea. Sarracenia leucophylla (var. green) - Open pollinated, growing near S. flava var. rugellii and S. 'Red Rocket'. This pitcher plant has no red pigment in it. Dionaea musiculpa. The famous Venus Flytrap! I collected the seeds too late and most had already dehisced. There are less than 10 seeds on offer here. These are marginally hardy for me (Z5/Z6). They grow in my bog bed year round, outdoors, and will survive with adequate snow cover (or mild enough winter). They MUST have a cold winter dormancy (but not too cold) so people in Z9 or warmer may find them challenging in the long run. Iris fulva. Hand pollinated, this is the typical red form. There are only about 15 seeds on offer here. I hand pollinated lots of flowers but had a lousy harvest. Very disappointing! Canna flaccida. Ex. PBS-BX # 258. There are only 13 seeds on offer here. I planted several seeds in mid-winter, indoors, under lights. Then moved them outside in late spring. One plant bloomed & set seed. These are them. Sinningia cardinalis. Distant relative to the African violet. Seeds are dust-like. Plants mature quickly and will bloom within 6 to 12 months after sowing. This species is geophytic and will form a large tuber with age. Flowers are spectacular! This is the typical red form. I grow it indoors as a house-plant, year round. Passiflora lutea. Ex. Northern Georgia, but fully cold hardy in Z5/Z6 Ohio. Flowers are less than an inch across! Not your typical passionflower. Vines grow 3 to 10 feet with no suckering. VERY well behaved compared to P. incarnata. (Not a geophyte.) Passiflora incarnata. Ex. Southern Ohio. Probably cold hardy to Z4. Flowers about 5 inches across with filaments squigglier than typical P. incarnata. Fruits are savory with a lemony-limey flavor. VERY badly behaved, suckers vigorously. Vines grow to 20 feet or more. Extremely floriferous. (Not a geophyte.) This is a thug.
