I took some extra time during my week to get some photos of a special place. Thought I would share. The following are photos from the Sandhills Gamelands in Scotland County, NC.
These plants should be protected in the forseable future. The general habitat consist of burned/managed pine stands with associated riparian wetlands/picosin habitat. Most of this land is managed for the endangered plant and woodpecker species found in this county.
Sarracenia rubra ssp. rubra was found growing along the wetland margins.
Something noncarnivorous but still special. This is the federally endangered rough-leaved loosestrife (Lysamachia asperulifolia). To bad its past flowering season. These are growing right along side the Sarras.
This site caught my attention when I came across beautiful Drosera intermedia growing almost upside down on a log.
