    2011 Green Swamp Trip

    It was a super dry summer in the swamp this year.
    I found only one small patch of D.intermedia

    Due to the drought, I was able to access parts of the swamp that were totally flooded in years past. I found these 2 hybrid Sarracenia about a mile or so in.

    That's about it for this year. Hopefully it'll be a little more on the wet side next summer.

    The pics were taken in North Carolina. I'll show you wild purps when you come up this summer.

    Very cool, thanks for sharing! The poor wee flytrap hurt my heart but the seeds instantly made it all better. Sweet!
