Getting my local carnivours

Brookeville, MD(Zone 7a)

I'm really fascinated by the carnivorous plants that occur in my home area naturally. Of course the last thing I'm going to do is go out and wild collect but I would still like to have a collection of these kinds. What's a good reference that will list the species and what would be a good place to buy these special plants/seed?

here's a relatively local resource.

And there's a good book - not the Savage Garden (good, but not focused on US natives) - I forget what the title is, though. Probably a Timber Press book.

CaptMicha, there's a ton of information on this site: http://www.sarracenia.com/faq.html and links to other sites.

Botanique in Stanardsville, VA is closing its retail facility with last shipping through Nov 1 -
http://www.pitcherplant.com/, also lots of good information. Hope this helps.

Botanique has shut down. They will not be gone for long though as they will come back as a not for profit.

The book I would recommend would be Carnivorous Plants of the United States and Canada by Donald E. Schnell. ISBN 0-99192-540-3

The combination of the link to the International Carnivorous Plant Society along with Don Schnell's book should provide you with hours of fun!

Even tho these folks are located on the West Coast - they know virtually everything about CP's, including those varieties indigenous to North America.

I'm sure if you e-mailed them they'd be more than willing to give you a list of what they carry that occurs naturally in the Maryland area.
