    Droserae endemic to Illinois are rotundifolia and intermedia
    which may be found in the following counties: Cook, Iroquois, Kane and Kankakee in bog/wetlands found there. You should be advised that these plants are endangered in these habitats, and any collection of plants or seeds is both illegal and unethical. This being said, I wish you luck in finding and seeing them. As to what they look like, a simple web search using the names as headers will provide many photos. Try http://www.gogettem.com/. Should you have desire to cultivate these plants I would be pleased to provide seed to you for a SASE. If interested contact me at tamlindd@yahoo.com

    Yup, rotundfolia and intermedia (temperate forms) live there in bogs and other peaty areas. Many of these places are being killed off by building of stuff by humans....stupid humans! j/k [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Shaun,

    No offense intended [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I just wanted you to know the score. There are many areas where these species can be found in the millions, sadly Illinois is not one of those places. In a very real sense, habitat evolution is leading to declining numbers as well as human "progress": bogs were formed in the last ice age, but are now evolving into hardwood forests, a natural process. Not to worry though, things will pick up again after the next ice age!
