The carnivorous plant collection is a dramatic display of insectivorous plants native to the southeast. In these beds the pitcher plants are most prominent but other species including venus flytraps, sundews, and butterworts can be found. Carnivorous plants thrive in sunny locations with nutrient poor, acidic, well drained soils. This display also features a number of species which require similar growing conditions including several native orchids. Last Update:
