    Wild Sarracenia

    I am having the hardest time identifying a Sarracenia I found while looking for rattlesnakes. I think one of them is Sarracenia minor, but the other I am unsure of. These were found in South Carolina if that would help any.

    Unknown.



    Sarracenia minor??



    I also stumbled onto this little drosera, I'm thinking intermedia?

    I'm no Sarracenia expert but the latter ones do indeed look like S. minor. Really nice pictures! Interesting to see what looks like apparent burn damage?

    So the unknown is also a S.minor, just not up to size yet?

    Those were found in one of the longleaf pine/wiregrass ecosystems where they do controlled burns. Funny how plants can survive burns like that, but from what I have heard, its extremely beneficial to the ecosystem.

    Great photos! They all seem to be Sarracenia minor, the dew seems to be Drosera capillaris, or D. brevifolia. Great pics, nonetheless!

    It's hard to tell what the first ones are. I'm thinking rubra. The minors look nice! Very cool find.
