Collection Name: NCBG - Carnivorous Plant Collection
Collection Description: Our carnivorous plant collection is known as one of the best in the Southeast. Numerous species of pitcher plants, sundews, and butterworts are found in the southeastern United States as are Venus' flytraps. These are cultivated in five raised beds. In addition to the carnivorous plants, these beds include some of the showier plants commonly found in pitcher plant bogs such as orchids, meadow beauties, and the pine lily. The centerpiece of this space is a sculpture depicting the prey of pitcher plants and honoring the late Rob Gardner, the developer and original curator of the collection.
