    Hey,

    I know it isn't carnivorous, but it has cropped up in and is restricted to my bog garden, so maybe someone knows what it is. There are 15 or 20 of them.

    Thanks,

    - what do you do when your bog is full? you build another. and another. and another. then you buy some pots. and some more. and some more. and some more. then you wonder how much it would cost to rework the hydrology in your yard to place your house on an island. -

    Patrick,
    It is a NASTY weed of the polygonamum species. Get rid of it quick. Purdy pink flowers or not. Just my opinion.

    What makes the plant particularly bad?

    Also - I have anothe plant to ID. I've also seen it growing in the bogs at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
