    Site #3.

    We arrived at this site on a fluke. No real information, just a name and a town. Sure glad we decided to seek it out ! This habitat was the most unique and diverse of the 3 we visited. All the plants were growing right on the edge of a pond with houses all around it. This spot had the most dense populations of plants as well as the largest and most vigorous specimens, probably due to the abundance of water verses the other 2 locations.









    Drosera intermedia - These plants were growing right from the shore up into the wood line. They also inhabited an area that was pure mud with large tussocks of grass or reeds, often growing on stalks right up through dense mats of vegetation.



























































    Drosera filiformis var. filiformis































    This was also the only site where we encountered any Utricularia.

    Utricularia gibba var. bifolia

















    Utricularia cornuta - Growing closer to the waters edge in pure sand.























    Emmi Kurosawa noticed the first Utricularia purpurea growing right at the waters edge.

    One of my absolute favorite places I've visited, The Green Swamp - Brunswick Co, NC. The following photos are a compilation of several trips wort of shots over several years.

    Sarracenia purpurea venosa

    Sarracenia flava - I'm not going to separate these into subspecies as many are introgrades between ssp. flava, cuprea, ornata, maxima and possibly even rugellii and atropurpurea.

    Sarracenia rubra rubra






























    Natural Hybrids

    S. purpurea venosa x rubra rubra





    Probably a back cross of S.x catesbaei (flava x purpurea venosa) to S. flava.

    I took a trip to Florida and even though time was limited, I still had the opportunity to visit a couple of CP habitats.

    Big Cypress Swamp:

    Pinguicula pumila:














    Pinguicula caerulea:








































    Utricularia cornuta












    Utricularia foliosa in Lake Dora, Central Florida:





    Faver-Dykes State Park:

    Utricularia subulata:


    Drosera capillaris:
























    Sarracenia minor:

    Beautiful pictures. If I were ever to come across a bog I would be so worried about stepping on a small Drosera while navigating between Sarracenia. Thanks for sharing.

    Also, there was another thread with the same title. I removed it because I thought it was a duplicate (with the pictures not working). Let me know if it needs to be merged into this thread.
