    Below is an example of the use of Darlingtonia as a landscape plant in an urban setting. The United Indian Health Services building in Arcata, California has created a completely artifical stream that runs through a central plaza, under the building, and around its perimeter. The water is then pumped back to the beginning of the stream. Clumps of Darlingtonia and other riparian plants are interspersed throughout the 'stream' system, making a lovely setting.

    goldtrap2690, read the top message. The photo is of the United Indian Health Services building in Arcata. I could venture a guess where they got the plants, but will refrain. The plants are not in pots, but are planted in a gravel-sand soil placed among rocks at the edge of the artifical stream. There are 20 or more clumps like the one shown in the photo dispersed along the 'stream'. The crown of some of the clumps are slightly submerged, others are are in soil a couple of inches above the water surface. Most appear to be quite healthy and happy in this setting.

    I don't know why, but that lanscaping scene reminds me of The fast and the furious. Where they consficated that building. Looking at the scene right now, and it doesn't look anything like it. I'm just having this weird dejavu thingy.
