Bog garden 2012

So here is the pitcher plant I put in last year in my little container bog garden.  I'm totally surprised at how pretty this flower is.  Reddish brown with downward facing petals.  I did not detect any fragrance.  The bog and all the surrounding plantings are starting to grow. 

We've had a warm winter and a dry spring already.  Although we did just a nice, slow one inch of rain yesterday.  I really hoping we don't have drought this year.  But it is the south and more times than not we're hot and dry in the summer.
