Chris, I purchased a similar (Gubler's) plant in late fall, and just
stuck it outside in a small stream with my big Darlingtonia and my
S. psittacina. I'm located on Vancouver Island, so same climate as
you. It still looks fine, and gets lots of rain washing through it.
I'd take a chance if I were you - they're pretty well suited to this
part of the world Regards, Jill Peterson
