Hello, I have decided to try posting picture posts by species. All of these photos were taken by me of plants growing in the wild in their native habitats. I have been very lucky to have the time to take trips to see these amazing areas, and very lucky indeed to become friends with some wonderful folks who were generous and willing to share information on how to grow such plants, as well as where to find them. Seeing these amazing plants and their amazing habitats really is a gift that I am so privileged to have seen. Anyway, too the pics....I'll break the posts up by species. Sarracenia alabamensis alabamensis, canebrake pitcher plant & Sarracenia alabamensis wherryi, Wherry's pitcher plant. I was very lucky to have been shown these plants shortly after a burn. You can see the burned twigs of the surrounding shrubs in some of the photos. I love seeing the various species of spiders, here a crab spider, that hunt around the mouths of Sarracenia. Often, they have adapted their color to match the plants. Some slightly reddish plants And some very nice golden-yellow plants A green lynx spider A stunning healthy clump Sarracenia alabamensis wherryi, Wherry's pitcher plant.
