The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Western Australia in 2007

Return to the Trip Overview

A familiar face:
We traveled northeast about 20 km (as the photon flies) to a broad open plain with widely spaced, stunted Melaleuca, Leptospermum, and Eucalyptus. I had seen enough of carnivorous plant sites in Australia to recognize the area's potential, and wasn't surprised when Phill slowed the car and found a parking spot.

The first thing we saw, getting out, were small specimens of Drosera purpurascens among the shrubs.

Very nice, but this wasn't why Phill had brought us here.
