    The Venus Flytrap may soon be the official carnivorous plant of NC.

    Sen. William Purcell, a Democrat from Scotland County NC, has introduce a bill recognizing the Venus Flytrap as North Carolina's Official Carnivorous Plant. Hopefully this bill will pass and the VFT will get the same protection that the Cardinal now gets.

    As far as I know this is the first time that a cp was recognized by a state.

    Dog wood is the PA state tree. It's highly illegal to cut them down cuz it's a religious thing. I know why but I don't want to offend anyone. I'm not religious at all though so to me it's just a cool tree in my yard. Actually it's annoying cuz it blocks the sun from my window!

    yeah I heard something about the religion part too. about the brown things in each bract that symbolize the crucifixion of jesus or something.
    isn't it annoying how many states have the same symbols?

    Why the official state CP?

    Why not just recognise it as the official state plant?
