Return to the Trip Overview

Another second chance:
I next returned to the nearby borrow pit that Mark had shown to me. I wanted to carefully explore it more fully. It was a shallow pond with a muck-sand floor, with light pocosin-type vegetation on its edges.

Fine clusters of Sarracenia flava grew in the shallow waters. This is a fine example of Sarracenia flava var. maxima; a name given to describe the plant in its all-green manifestation.

Other specimens had light vertical venation, suggesting hybridization with other varieties in the species.
