Webb's Mill Bog

First of all, Happy July! I have been on vacation in NJ so I apologize for the lack of posts.  Well, today I took a little trip to Webb's Mill Bog, a bog in the New Jersey Pine Barrens. This is my second trip down there and it is one of the coolest bogs I have ever been to. I highly recommend going there if you live in the area. They have Drosera intermedia, rotundifolia, and filiformis. It is located on the border of the Sarracenia purpurea ssp. purpurea and Sarracenia purpurea ssp. venosa, so some cool forms and color patterns emerge. They also have Utricularia, which I believe is Ucornuta. Enjoy the pictures!

The water level was about an inch lower than last year.

It's the attack of the Triffids!

Utricularia cornuta...I think

S. purpurea with almost vertical traps

A D. rotundifolia hides amongst the Sphagnum

It's not carnivorous... but it looked cool

This S. purpurea almost has the coloring of S. flava var. rubricorpora

Some cool looking Sphagnum...

I would call this one S. "Easter Island" do you see it?

Drosera intermedia

And the plants are reproducing well!

A nice healthy seed pod

D. filiformis with prey

Is it a x courtii? Probably not, just a small purpurea
