   Well, if it is similar to a New Jersey winter, you can kiss
those plants good-bye. I have tried year after year to get
D.capensis and D. binata to establish in my bogs and they never
came back with the spring.
   Interesting plants that did, however: P. pumila, D.burmanii
(it might be sessifolia, I have to see the flowers). D. peltata
did manage to survive one winter, only to rot in dormancy after
   Of course, the first two survive as seed through winter, but
I was very suprised when the peltata came back and flowered.
