I love these. What kind do you have? Have you seen the one called "Dana's Delight?"

Excellent. Looks like you have some flowers coming on the centre two. Have you ever grown them from seed?

Hi Bathgate

"Dana's Delight" looks stunning just googled it , but I dont have.

I have:

Joyce Cooper
oreophila var. ornata - Sand Mountain, Georgia ( this one is stunning)

Daniel Rudd
Night Nurse
Lynda Butt
Excellens Slack’s Original
Judith Hindle
Uncle Jim's Road

and a couple of others

Hi Siris yes more than two with flower heads starting , never grown from seed , but have grown from tiny seedlings which was fun , the pot in the photo bottom right , pitchers are getting bigger every year .

I will take some more photos as they get bigger through the spring and summer, flowers are amazing look like space ships is the best way to describe them.

Gg - you have quite a collection. They remind me of a cobra when it rears up just before it strikes.

thanks both ... starts with one , I think your getting to know me by now lol I have a thing about.. then before you know it another mini collection arrives but they all get looked after.

They have all been split and re-potted in to the special compost mix, I do this every 3 years to the whole lot.

Yes Bathgate , some of them really do resemble a cobra.

In the UK we say its like "Bovril" you either like or you dont.

Siris check yours for mini loli pops

No lollipops yet Gg, but they have been outdoors all winter. 1 pitcher has a wee bit of frost damage at the very tip, otherwise looking very good.
