    Darlingtonia in Southern Oregon Siskiyou Mountains

    A lot of these pics were taken in the rain, figures the day before we got there it was sunny with temps in the 90s. A soggy camping trip, but well worth it. Amazing the diversity of these plants. I saw them growing on rocky hillsides, in gravel that looked dry on the surface, clinging to rocks in the middle of streams, in bog-like conditions, in thick moss, and even growing in ditches along the side of the road. Videos at the end, click on images.

    I don't know what these pretty flowers are, but they were growing almost everywhere the Darlingtonia were

    Great pics DJ ! My favorite in situ cp pics are always those of dense fields of Sarracenia and Darlingtonia. I think those orange flowers are Western Lilies (Lilium occidentale). They grow in the same wet habitats as Darlingtonia and Drosera.

    Amazing pictures! I've seen that western lily before, but sadly there were no Cps nearby after 4 miles of hiking .


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    ya that was deffinatly a western lillies. I like to grow those with my sarrs for contrast in foliage and the flowers help make all the minute pitcher colors pop out. They are very resilient and propigate readily. Great addition to bogs if you have an area that is on the drier side. They don't care to much for their roots to be constantly soaking wet.

    Those are spectacular, DJ! So many snakes in the grass. The videos are lots of fun, too.
