    A Prickly Pear.


    Water Lily.


    Now let's get to some of the CP's....
    Let's start with the dews.
    D. intermedia was the most common followed by D. rotundifolia.




    On Sunday Bob, Joe, and I did some serious bush wacking into the Pine Barrens. We came across a few areas that were dry and many of the sundews were dead. In these dry areas we located 5 or so D. filiformis that formed hibiscus that was still green, but all the leaves were brown.
    I managed to locate some of the very elusive D. filiformis in another area that I stopped at before I left the park on Sunday.


    And some pictures of Sarracenia purpura.

    Awww...y'all located some filiformis. That's great! More nice photos Steve.

    Hibiscus = hibernacula. Typing a lil' too fast in the excitement of the discovery?

    Them are some nice picture plants [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    A question- are prickly pears endemic in that area?? I just think it's kinda weird to see such a thing in a bog-like area, with all those grasses and whatnot...
    Thanks for posting these sweet pics!!
