Sarracenia flava (Sarracenia flava rugelli "Black Water Florida")

Sarracenia with yellow flowers on the shelf in the top pond. It has been oudoors here all winter. What an interesting carnivorous plant and flower structure.

well done you ...

Thank you both, the other flavum has started to extend its bud now. This one I have removed from the pond, put it in its own 'mini pond' so I can put in on the outside table to examine its flower structure more carefully, very unusual with the 'unbrella'. Pollen not ready yet.

Well done, I am going to do a blog on the ones we saw at Malvern, from Hampshire carnivorous socy, fantastic made me want to invest in them again..

Dd, the company is at West End now, I believe, and I saw them for sale at Abbey, last year after visiting you.

I keep all mine in a cold greenhouse all winter, but just kept damp not sitting in water.

Gg, I would too if I had the luxury of someone to tend them.

Now I have this at eye level, and nose level, it has not an unpleasant scent , reminiscent of citrus?

No sign of any visible pollen yet, although I have been running a mini brush over the stigma for the last few days.
