Japan (Tokyo area) gets bitterly cold (down to -10 C on occasions) and
we experience two or three good snowfalls annually. The only
sarracenias I lost, due to allowing them to get too dry, were s.
psittacina and s. minor. Dionaea do fine. The cold seems not the
problem: rather, the dessicating Siberian winds. Allow for this and the
UK winters should be a piece of cake!
