NCBG - Coastal Plain Habitat

The Coastal Plain and Sandhills Habitats represent the wide range of ecosystems present in the eastern part of the state, beginning with the rolling sandhills where you see the state tree of North Carolina, the longleaf pine (Pinus palustris). Soon the terrain becomes flatter, simulating the pocosin and wetland habitats common on the outer coastal plain. In this area grow myrtle (Myrica cerifera) and carnivorous plants, such as the Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) and pitcher plants (Sarracenia species).
