    Yes we have. Go back in this thread, there are photos of U.intermedia. We rarely see it in flower but it's one of the more common species locally.

    This weekend saw us back on Cape Cod. We visited a site close to the tip of the peninsula with very healthy populations of Sarracenia purpurea purpurea, Utricularia cornuta and several species of orchids. I need to get back out here next May/June to catch the orchids in bloom, it must be quite a sight considering the density of plants. The 2 Drosera species at this site were all very small and rather unimpressive.



    We were very surprised to find 3 Calopogon tuberosus still in bloom this late in the season.










    We found a couple flowering Utricularia geminiscapa plants here.




    Utricularia cornuta was everywhere we looked. We missed a mass flowering by only a week or 2 here.




















    Drosera intermedia


    Drosera rotundifolia




    This site hosted a large and healthy population of small, vibrantly colored Sarracenia purpurea purpurea. Oddly, none of the plants that had flowers had any pitchers.


























































    It was at this point that I dropped my camera in the water so, that's it for now. Enjoy !

    Nice pictures! The Sarracenia purpurea look pretty nice.

    And on today's adventure..........

    Sites on the South Shore of Massachusetts, some repeat visits and some new ones.......

    We saw a single Sarracenia purpurea purpurea on a large floating bog accessible only by boat. There are sure to be many more plants out there, just couldn't access the area.


    A large, crowded colony of Drosera rotundifolia.




    Drosera intermedia












    Drosera filiformis filiformis








    Utricularia geminiscapa




    Utricularia intermedia


    Utricularia purpurea












    Utricularia cornuta






















    The infamous and elusive Utricularia resupinata.

    That cornuta island was intense. We'll be returning with a boat to get closer next time.

    I've never seen so much U. cornuta in one place before! That's astonishing!

    We were blown away by the site of it. The vibrant, yellow swaths were visible through the trees from quite a way off. It was a real " Am I seeing what I think I'm seeing ?" moment.
