    We need help getting rid of picture plants that grow on our land. Cattle like them but the pictures give them gas. We tried burning them and the dam pictures came back like dandylions in the spring.

    The county agent won't help us because he says there something named jonesy and that means goverment says there endangered. But my dad says there not named jonesy. Grampa called them mountain sweet picture plants. The flowers smell sweet but it isn't so sweet surrounded by a herd of gassy cattle. Will roundup kill them or maybe the atrazine we spray on corn.

    You could just try calling them sarracenia sp. (species). That might work. I dont know how they would deffinatively differentiate rubas from the subspecies jonesii.

    I smell a sockpuppet or troll.

    If you're for real, and the land is yours, then there are people on this list who would happily come over and assess the situation. Not sure what the law is regarding endangered plants like Sarracenia rubra ssp. jonesii, but if you intend to destroy the plants, we will remove them for you.

    LOL. I had to look up sock puppet, but I know what a troll is. My first thought was: how many of you now need CPR. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    But skepticism aside, yeah, we're a real helpful bunch, and your problem and the pitcher plants can both be helped. BTW, you may or may not know that 'mountain sweet pitcher plant' is synonymous with S. rubra ssp. jonesii (but may apply to others species). Also, I do not believe that this subspecies is native to Alabama. Is that where you live?

    Troll alert detected. Wait if you tried burning them, how come the county agent didn't say anything abou that?
