We had lots (and lots) of rain in March..you can see the bog flooded somewhat...nice red/purple coloration on last season's pitchers! By May 5th, the water receded, and the S. Purpureas started new growth with many flower stalks. Literally thousands of Droseras coming out of dormancy (Intermedia, Filliformis and Rotundifolia)....We weeded out a couple of bushels of invasive grasses that were obscuring the plants. Here's the photobucket link
We use boards...1" X 10" and about 8 feet long. We just lay the board on the bog, walk or crawl out, do our weeding, and remove the board. Some plants get temporarity smooshed , but the recover in a day.
Oh nice! I would be interested to see if you can find any pitcher plant midges (Metriocnemus knabi) or mosquitoes in the pitchers. I bet so. Looks like you would get muddy looking though. Beautiful plants. Thanks for sharing.
