A Section Dedicated to Only Native Canadian Carnivorous Plant.

  1. Sarracenia purpurea ssp. purpurea

    Sarracenia purpurea ssp. purpurea Canada's Carnivorous Plant pride! Our only pitcher plant but it widespread across every province and territory with the possible exception of the Yukon. Low-growing rosettes of green to purple leaves, with flowers held far above the plant. The flower structure can be a dead give a way to the location of a plant even when the rosettes can't be seen. Typically occurs in bogs and other wetlands but can sometimes be found on unusual soils (like some populations around the great lakes). It is also the provincial flower of Newfoundland!

  2. Sarracenia purpurea ssp. purpurea f. heterophylla

    Sarracenia purpurea ssp. purpurea f. heterophylla The much rarer colour form of the more common Sarracenia purpurea ssp. purpurea. The lack of anthocyanin pigment (Red, purple and Blue) makes these plants completely green (antho-free). Although rare this is the most common of all antho-free Sarracenia. Occurring in at least three sites in Ontario (probably more) Quebec, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland. These all green plants are easy to identify at most locations as the plant has absolutely now red pigment, even at the base and growth point. The flowers are also completely green and yellow. ADDITON NOTE: Please do not disclose the location of these plants, they are in easy to access areas and the target of poachers. We will delete any info regarding the location of these plants.

  10. Drosera x obovata

    Drosera x obovata The natural hybrid of Drosera anglica and Drosera rotundifolia. Possibly occurs in all areas where these species overlap, which is every province except Nova Scotia and PEI. Very hard to tell apart of pure Drosera anglica, shorter with slightly wider leaves, like a very robust and "thick" Drosera anglica Additional Links ibis.geog.ubc.ca/biodiversity/eflora/databases/List_of_excluded_species2014.pdf
