    Attached are some pictures from a local fen. I also posted pictures from my visit in the Conservation Station, Pitcher Plants, Sundews and Utricularia forums.

    There were many Drosera spatulata hidden in the grass and sedges of this fen.

    Just wanted to share.

    It's great to see healthy wild populations of CPs! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Awsome, Glenn. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] It still amazes me to see them in the wild (in pics) since I only get to see them in pots. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] You are very lucky!

    What area do you live in?

    Thanks for sharing. Just beautiful. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hi Suzanne,

    I live in Fenton, MI which is just South of Flint (North of Detroit). The fen is about 15 minutes from my house. I'm very lucky to have this spot so near my house! Michigan has quite a few sites with CPs. I'm just beginning to explore them. My goal is to see every native Michigan CP growing in the wild. My count is 16 (it may be more) and I have 11 to go.

    Hi Glenn,
    Nice pics! I'm pretty sure those aren't D. spatulata, but rather D. rotundifolia....

    Need a more expert eye, though.

    I agree with Schloaty, those look much more like Rotundifolia rather than spatulata. Nice pics!

    LOL, I was just about to say the same thing. Spatulata doesn't grow in MI, just rotundifolia, intermedia and linearis.
