We have moved to Wichita Falls, Texas. This is Hardiness Zone 7b. We're at the southern end of the Southern Plains, near the Oklahoma border - 2hrs from Oklahoma City, Lubbock, and Fort Worth.
The garden has a pond and a reasonable amount of shade. Can I grow Sarracenia in these conditions? I'm thinking it should be possible to grow it as a marginal in a pot that is on a pond shelf (ie. base is submerged), but raised up so that the soil (or coarse sand) surface is an inch or two above the pond surface. Is that possible? Has anyone tried something like this?
I was thinking of Sarracenia alata because of the size (18-24in) and I have seen it growing in the wild in East Texas (shaded bottom-land forest/swamp).
