I ran into a lady name of ******* who keeps a couple of large greenhouses in Washington on the Olympic Peninsula at the amazing Glass Flowers exhibit in Harvard's Museum of Natural History last Friday. *Of course we got to discussing interesting plants to grow, and because we were standing in front of the ...
... carnivorous plants, the discussion turned to CPs. *
I'll leave out the boring details, but the one thing that came up that i have to ask the forum is regarding the original extent of the VFT habitat. *She asserted that the VFT was native to the Olympic Peninsula (i believe that was it - somewhere in Washington, at least) as well as the Carolinas. *Now, i know what i've read, and i've read it a lot of places, and i told her so myself: the VFT is native to just the Carolinas. *She replied again that it was in Washington as well. *I asked if perhaps it was naturalized there, and she said that it was indigenous to the area. *So, has anybody heard of this before? *I am inclined to disbelieve, but she seemed to know a lot about the other topics we discussed, so i'm willing to give her story a chance.
