The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Appalachian Excursion in 2007!

Return to the Trip Overview

Red blush indeed:
I have one final photograph of a plant that was very reddish indeed. This plant has a completely different nature to its venation. Instead of the vertical striping as on the other plants, this plant shows a reticulated venation.

In this photograph you can clearly see a number of Drosera rotundifolia plants in flower (lower right) and in fruit (center). We also saw Utricularia cornuta in flower.

This site has many other fabulous Sarracenia purpurea--perhaps the most beautiful plants are ones I was not able to photograph, and which are at the very bottom of the rock slope. There, the rock wall is absolutely sheer and inaccessible. The only way to get close enough to the plants to photograph them would put them at risk of damage.
