    I've got three pitcher plants and 2 VFT growing outside in my bog garden, and was looking for a Drosera to add to my collection that would be native (or thrive at least) in North Carolina. I was looking for that would be relatively easy to grow. Any suggestions?

    D. Brevifolia is native to NC. in fact thats where i got mine! its a very pretty, usually small and sometimes short-lived plant. it gets a nice red color!. check out the thread under "Identify That Plant" called NC sundew. there are some pics there.

    The ICPS seedbank has D. intermedia "NC" that they recommed over any other locale, so I amguessing they are robust, and I think they said they run on the large side for this species.

    Cheers,
