    It is called Creeping Mazus. It is a low-growing ground cover that spreads quickly. I have it growing around the edge of my bog. I don't know where it came from, just started growing in there a couple years ago. I like the flowers, but it is getting somewhat invasive and I will probably pull it out next year.

    Nice sarrs you got there! Great save on the death cube VFT. I look forward to watching your CP collection grow.

    BTW, your pics look great to me.

    That wildflower is interesting. I've seen it before, but I can't remember what it is.
    I admit, it's not my favorite of my sars ( I <3 leucophylla) but what did the doodlebug do to you? Trip you in the middle of the night? Eat the last slice of ham and put the container back in the fridge? Chew up your homework?

    Hmm... Guess it's some kind of bog plant because it loves the wettest areas around my pond and grows on those mossy rocks pretty well. I like it. Gives that natural feel to my pond. I'm glad to know what it is now. Thanks, DJ!

    That's why it's funny. It's become a running joke in the CCPS. We call her Doodlebug now.

    And I got the entire story today!

    I also got a flower today! My Drosera spathulata/tokaiensis opened a flower today! Will it help in ID-ing the plant?



    Also my leucophylla opened a new pitcher!


    ^actually from a few days ago...



    With some new flava pictures in the background.

    Looks like the fertile version to me, D. tokaiensis. The hybrid's flower stalks unroll very early on, instead of unrolling as it flowers like the species seems to do. Flower color also matches my fertile form.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
