    Bog Trip - Eastern Massachusetts - August 2014

    I visited another bog early this morning. I've been to this location several times but, the S.purpurea here are unusually beautiful. This is also the only place I've seen Drosera x beliziana, the natural hybrid of D.intermedia and D.rotundifolia.

    Drosera rotundifolia




    Drosera intermedia


    Drosera x beleziana and Drosera intermedia

    Calopogon tuberousus - Too late in the season for flowers. Better luck in the spring.


    Sarracenia purpurea purpurea

    Thanks guys. This is a heavily poached population but with a little extra work plenty of beautiful plants can be found.

    Love the color on the purps! Also, interesting to see there appears to be some notable variation in the shape of D. x beleziana leaves. The ones you show in the wild are pretty intermediate between the parents, or leaning toward more elongate, but a lot I notice in cultivation tend to lean somewhat toward rotundifolia (including my wacky one, D. beleziana "Dr. Frankensnyder's Monster").
    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.

    This population of x beliziana seems to equally represent both parents. Others I've seen in cultivation tend to lean one way or the other. This could be due to conditions though, especially if the plants are grown indoors. These are the only ones I've ever seen in the wild, I'm curious to see what plants from other locations look like.

    Nice photos! & interesting location, looks like a White Atlantic Cedar bog. Great color on the Purps there!
    Good catch on the Beleziana, I think you'll enjoy the Sept issue of the CPN

    Thanks Matt ! It is indeed an Atlantic white cedar bog. Unfortunately the area is well known and extremely poached out but there are still some beautiful plants deep in the bog. The color on the x beleziana makes them stand apart from the parent species, making them fairly easy to pick out. I'm going to explore at least one more location in southern NH this weekend. Let me know if you ever want to come up and do a weekend of bogging. I'd be more than happy to show you some of these spots.
