The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

North and South Carolina low country, 2007

Return to the Trip Overview

Rare sundew:
The road was bordered on both sides by drainage ditches. As expected, the usual carnivorous species were growing in the muck and water. But it was a surprise to see these Drosera filiformis growing on the muddy banks. This is an uncommon species in North Carolina--it is much more common further north. This is one reason Mark had brought me here.

By hunkering down, very close to the water, I was able to get some nice photographs.

Here is another, and yet one more.
