(Note: All plants offered are grown from tissue culture.) We are pleased to be able to offer artificially propagated plants of our wonderfully interesting NC native plant (Actually I think it was brought here by extraterrestrial aliens, but scientists don't yet concur).This semi-evergreen carnivorous perennial makes a nice rosette to 12" wide, great for a bog or very wet site. The trigger-happy fly traps form on the ends of the leaves throughout the growing season...stalks of white flowers are also produced in the summer. Do not artificially feed the traps, as overfeeding kills the plants...feeding them unruly small kids is okay!
