Well if you couldn't tell from my tone, I am thoroughly upset. Summer has come way too quickly, and is basically killing off every single one of my flower buds. Already I lost that flava bud that was previously mentioned and now my 'Ladies in Waiting' just died too. So besides unnamed hybrids with flowers all I have is a S. purpurea ssp. purpurea that has pink petals! Pink petals are highly indicative of S. rosea or a backcrossed hybrid. So the making of new little Sarracenia plants looks to be greatly inhibited this year. And on top of all of that several of my greenhouse plants that I put outside look like there going into shock and the mexican butterworts are all shriveled from the heat. This early summer is bothersome.
