Dear Andrew,

   I would try all of them, at least once, in a home-made bog.

   It's really quite odd, but the one your probably have the
worst results with is also a purp. _Sarracenia purpurea venosa
burkei_ bearly manages to flower here in Jersey so I doubt you
would ever see flowers up there, maybe the whole plant would
die too. Most other species are quite hardy. (Hardy means for
plant to be able to survive freezing conditions, not with how
robust it grows or appears)
