    Technically, S.purpurea purpurea's range covers parts of iowa. I'm not sure if any stands still exist (or ever did) there.

    I mean in the GOOD soil in Iowa XD.

    No, I don't believe there are any there at all anymore. I've never heard of it, at least.

    D. rotundifolia is there, as well as several species of Utricularia. The USDA does not list Iowa has having any Sarracenia.

    what about this one that I found on the second link? I think that it looks very likely, but I've never heard of it before.

    Keep in mind that there are some plants that employ sticky glands as a primarily defensive measure, to prevent pests from scaling certain portions of stem. "Bugs stick to it" isn't synonymous with carnivorous. Think of how cautiously Roridula is given carnivorous status - folks make special exception to mention that it's a carnivore-by-proxy; a symbiotic type of assassin bug lives on Roridula, consuming trapped bugs and fertilizing the plant with their waste, if I recall. But the plant itself doesn't do anything to digest the trapped bugs - it's left to an associate species to make effective use of the prey.

    Isn't that like saying that the pitcher plant that doesn't produce digestive fluids isn't carnivorous?
