The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Appalachian Excursion in 2007!

Return to the Trip Overview

Sarracenia purpurea:
The next morning I met up again with Jim and his partner at a rendezvous gas station, and we caravanned towards some sites in the western Carolinas that I had seen before.

We first stopped near the border of North and South Carolina, at a Sarracenia purpurea population that grew in a quiet streamside bog. (You can refer to my 2005 trip report for a summary of this site.)

The day was excellent for photography, and I'm happy how this photograph looks. Those of you who insist you can see pitcher characters that identify the so-called "var. montana" can try to convince yourselves that perhaps there is some kind of hood-pinching character to the pitchers at this site.

Here is another view of this plant.
