Backyard purps (New Brunswick)

Devon

Sprout
G’day,

I am posting from my phone so hopefully I do the pics right.

Went for a stroll in the woods with the skeeters yesterday to check out the wild purps. There is a small bog on my property that I lucked out in getting.

This year has not been so good for them unfortunately as the bog/forest is quickly becoming overgrown with other plants, we had a dry spring, and the deer are now rampaging through the bog pooping and stomping on all the plants. The plants that got covered in scat are looking pretty bad, maybe root rot.

I suspect “my” bog is slowly dying from the development nearby and plants/trees taking over. I will update this thread in 30 years if it’s still there.

There are still lots of happy plants and many phenotypes. I quite like the ones with the red patch and green pitcher, like the cultivar ‘Sorrow’.

I am hoping to do a seed give away this fall from some good specimens. Fingers crossed...

What a treat. Thanks!

I almost never see wild CPs here in BC. It's become increasingly difficult to even find sundews, I feel. The most I ever saw were the ones I transplanted as part of a bog restoration I worked on. That doesn't really count, does it?

Supposedly BC has purps but only in/around Fort Nelson which is waaaaaay north and to the east of the Rockies. I'd love to see them.

There's some sundews in Port Moody. I forget the exact spot but was a great sight. It was a very small area just off a dock. I miss BC so much :(
