Non-native Carnivorous Plants at Albion Bog
Photos of a few of the non-native plants growing at Albion Bog before their removal by the Nature Conservancy (the owners of the bog).
Albion Bog is a particularly wet part of a pygmy pine forest located on the Mendocino County coast of northern California. The place has been used for ad-hoc experiments by carnivorous plant enthusiasts for a few decades. As a result, there’s an odd assemblage of carnivorous plants from around the world growing among the pines.
The Nature Conservancy, which owns the wetlands, got tired of the plantings a couple years ago and removed as much of the alien material as the could. Read more about it here.
I took these photos before the TNC removal. It’s quite odd to see Sarracenia growing wild, more or less, in that environment.
Sarracenia purpurea subsp. venosa
