Plants of Prey

Record #:
Five groups of carnivorous plants are found in all regions of the state, but are most common in the Coastal Plain. In recent years the environment where these plants grow is being destroyed as wetlands are being drained for housing developments, pine plantations, and golf courses. Plant poaching is also a serious threat for some species. Adams describes each of the five groups of plants: Venus flytrap, pitcher plant, bladderwort, butterwort, and sundew.
