Fourteen varieties of carnivorous plants live in Brunswick County's Green Swamp. Some are small aquatic ones, while others rise to three feet. Species growing there include the Venus flytrap, pitcher plant, and sundew.
Brunswick County's Green Swamp is a 140-square-mile haven for plants and wildlife. All fourteen of the state's carnivorous plants live there. The area lay untouched for centuries until 1907 when the Waccamaw Lumber Company began logging operations. In 1974, the Department of the Interior designated 24,800 acres as a National Natural Landmark.
