The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Sarracenia alata with a lagniappe, 2005

Return to the Trip Overview

Photographed against the low sun, these leaves are very pretty, don't you think?

This site had both S. alata and S. psittacina, but we found neither hybrids nor pink-flowered plants. It was an odd contrast with the previous site, that had pink-flowered S. alata but no S. psittacina.

Here's another view of a different plant, not quite as nice, but that shows you more signs of a previous burn.

While Beth and I enjoyed chattering, proposing theories and counter-theories about the things we were seeing (Beth always having to disagree with everything I suggested, no matter how sensible or self-evident), what we saw next shut us both up, other than a repeated, "Wow...Wow...Oh my...Wow...Oh man..."
