Oh...pitchers.....You pulled a Kenny on me.
I was wondering if that plant was some kind of pitcher plant. I'd seen the...um...upright? kind growing wild in North Carolina--neat plants. (Online research tells me they were members of the genus "Serracenia"?) There's a park south-west of Wilmington that has something like 14 different kinds of carnivorous plants growing wild there. Sundews, Pitcher Plants, Venus Fly Traps...(research again tells me Butterworts and Bladderworts too--I just remember the first three.)
I hadn't realized that Venus Fly Traps come exclusively (originally--they're cultivated elsewhere now) from that area--in a 60 mile radius from Wilmington, they said. I guess they were a touch more widespread historically, but the wild population is declining, almost endangered.
