    Howdy!

    I'm new to the forums.

    I the proud owner of a Natural Sand Hill Seep bog in Central Alabama. The Chunnenuggee bog . Chunnenuggee is Creek Indian meaning "High Ground" http://www.chunnenugee.homestead.com/
    This is "New" web site, I just started it over the week end so it's very VERY basic and I've got ALOT of work to do on it so please forgive the incomplete nature of my site.

    I started the bog about three years ago. I have all the native Sarracenia in the bog along with sundews, flytraps and other natives to Bogs of the South Eastern US. It's a labor of love and I did my first burn in February of this year.

    Nice place y'all have here!

    Those are beautiful flowers. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I haven't seen any of them here in Az. Then again, only cactus grows in Az.

    Edit Reason: I misread Africa for Alabama. Sorry.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    NO! Those a Sarracenia Leucophylla.. (White Top Pitcher plants) Native ONLY to South Alabama, Florida Pandhandle and Extreme West Georgia.
    They are carnivorous plants that bloom in the spring of the year. They grow in bogs and other wet areas. They are becoming very rare due to habitat destruction.

    Check out Randy's page for more info on Sarracenia and other plants of the Gulf Coast..

    I know... I'm sorry. As I said in the edit, I mis-read Alabama for Africa.

    One more thing..

    Once I get up and going good I'll post dozens of pics of Sarracenia from my bog. Sarracenia are NEAT carnivourous plants and the Chunnenuggee bog is full of them

    Randy page does an EXCELLENT job of describing the various Sarracenia. (Pitcher Plants) Randy is a good friend of mine.

    Most all Sarracenia are becoming threatened. Habitat destruction due to local bogs being filled and developed are putting the these wonderful plants in a bind.

    Sarracenia also need fire to reduce competion from other weeds and shrubs. The wildfires that was once common along the Gulf Coast is now almost absent, and most bogs that are not burned are being over grown with brush and trees. In Alabama their are two Sarracenia on the threaded and endangered species list, Sarracenia Alabamensis and Sarracenia Oreophila.

    At the current rate of habitat destruction, it's only a matter of time before more of the Sarracenia are listed as "threatened or endangered"

    The Chunnenuggee Bog is my effort to preserve and celebrate Sarracenia in Alabama in their native environment. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    It's a labor of love and I'm having a blast watching them grown and thrive.
