    Wild Sarracenia, Dews and other CP's in the Southeast

    Hello all, I have decided to post some pics of some wild CP's after being urged by some other member, hope you enjoy
    Also, most of these pics are taken with my cellphone, and it hates having it's pictures turned over to the internet, so a few of them aren't the highest quality, sorry about that.

    I'll start off with some pics of S. rubra subsp. wherryi in Splinter Hill Bog:



















    Hope you enjoyed, more Pics and Sarracenia species to come, stay tuned

    Nice shots. Is this the only species of carnivorous plant in this location ?

    No, there is actually 2 or three species around, if you look carefully in the first pic you might see some S. leucophylla, and in some of the pics you can see some yellow flowered Utricularia, which are probably U. striata, and there really hard to see but I think there is some D. capillaris in there too.
    Nearby were some D. intermedia and D. tracyi, and we didn't see any but also some S. rosea

    For my 50th post I'll post some pics of something pretty rare, Sarracenia oreophila in the wild! I found these in a well known National Preserve or Park, can't remember if it was a reserve or park, in northern Alabama. They were pretty shaded, but it was still very cool to see such a rare plant in the wild, now I've only got to find S. alabamensis [also S. rubra subsp. alabamensis] and S. rubra supsp. jonesii...

    Anyway, the pics aren't the best since it was getting dark and raining, sorry about that:



    This plant in the next two pictures had a really nice long lid compared to the others:

    Too bad they were growing in such a shaded habitat. Terrific plants though ! Always nice to see S. oreophila in the wild.

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention I took GPS coordinates and gave them to the park biologist along with visual directions to the plants, and he said he would go take a look at them, so hopefully they cleared a little bit of the area around them so they could get more sun.

    Some S. alata I saw on my return trip from Utah, somewhere right before the Alabama border with Mississippi, they were right next to the highway and were often mowed, hence the dwarf pitchers:

















    There was a few D. tracyi at the site too:


    and then something really special, a S. alata x psittanica hybrid:








    Some D. capillaris all over the ground, there virtually impossible to not accidentally step on:


    A few plants were growing next to a fence and were much larger:
