    Hello everyone! The CCPS is having another meeting, our first of the year, and this may be short notice for a lot of you (so very sorry about that). The meeting is taking place May 24-27, 2013 in the Havelock/Newbern/Beaufort/Atlantic Beach, NC, area where we will be touring! For more information on the meetup or to RSVP please email us at: carolinacpsociety@gmail.com.

    Thank you!
    Heather

    It's about time to update this thread! So the CCPS had our Fall meetup. This time it was at the UNC-Charlotte McMillan Greenhouses in Charlotte, NC. We had a good showing of about 10 members. We had a great plant swap and talk with Dr. Larry Mellichamp, creator of the Bug Series Sarracenia. After a quick lunch we continued on to a local CPer's collection, David Crump, he was a very interesting fellow who has been growing Sarracenia for a few decades now. He was very generous and sold us some of his personal hybrid creations such as 'Bog Witch', 'Yellow Jacket' and some NC location data S. flava and S. purpurea, legally obtained of course! After David's place the meetup was technically over but myself, Graham, and Ian continued on to Atlanta for a visit to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens!
