    Looking through my 'weed' book of NY.. I am coming up with Epipactis helleborine. Will be easier to tell when the flowers open.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Hot dawg! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] What's the status on this plant Tony? Does the book say common uncommon rare, etc? I am guessing common. DEC says it's a frequent species in NY state.
