Venus Flytraps

These are the very unusual leaves of the Venus Flytrap. I call this plant growing in the wild the "mother" of all Venus Flytraps (Dionaea muscipula). This species is the only one of the genus and is endemic to an area of about 150-mile radius around Wilmington, NC. Because it is so easy to propagate, it is sad to see its decline from people still digging wild plants to sell.
