  1. Hi Dave, I have heard something similar, but I haven't observed the plants in those locations to be able to have an opinion. What I have seen, is that these Purp's on LI are definitely more similar to the rough-skinned & squat ones in NC as opposed to the smooth-skinned & longer ones of Northern Massachusetts. I've also seen the smoother-skinned & longer ones like in Massachusetts here too. I'll be taking more photos to show a comparison of a few different LI locations this season... But for now, I am inclined to call these ssp Venosa vs. ssp Purpurea as that is what they more resemble of the two current classifications. Purp venosa Montana does seem like it should be called Purp purp Montana I think too, as it more resembles ssp Purp than ssp Venosa.
  2. Hey Marcel! I actually do have some nice pictures of the Atlantic White Cedars, I think they may be a dwarf form as there are fully mature ones at like five feet... or they could be stunted from the wet habitat. There is a place where I know for a fact that there are Dwarf Atlantic White Cedars here and I will have to check it out this upcoming season! Anyways, I'll get the pics up soon as I have a chance. Andreas, Tipitiwitchet is as Marcel had said, also it is a webiste of mine, take a look! I also have a newer website that is MKaelin.com Meizwang, from the descriptions I have seen, these seem to have both ssp attributes... and as both forms can be found in NJ and I am on Long Island which is not very far at all, they could be some kind of crossing here I suppose... anybody familar with positive identification of the ssp, please chime in!
  3. Any ideas if these are spp purpurea or ssp venosa?
  4. Very, very interesting about the Bulldozer Alexander! I may do a small-scale experiment with topsoil scraping then... Thanks Sundewmatt! LI represent! and there will be more to come!
  5. Hi Matt, Thx! & yes, I would say they're very young Intermedia's. I may be revisiting in a week or two with some better equipment and should be able to get some better pics if they're still around...
  6. There were some U. Purpurea nearby too:
  7. A couple last pics for now: These are the "Coastal Plains Ponds" But I don't see any plains! Badly overgrown... up to the edge of the water and this year the water levels are low... could use some clearing!!! This is the only spot I'm aware of that has Filiformis that is not out towards Montauk Point. And there's just a few struggling individuals left!
  8. I have more pics with close-ups of the soil surface to see their grassy growth-habits... Being from Long Island, it would've been cool to have an endemic species... but it looks as if these are just growth habits of a widely distibuted species! I'll probably go back in September to see if they do the cleistogamous flowering habit as a seasonal thing.
  9. This thread is otherwise known as "Long Island, Location 5" Now then, I'm definitely no Botanist, and I'm new to Utics... so just keep that in mind here... Marcel was kind enough to show me this: http://www.jstor.org/stable/2479079?origin=JSTOR-pdf Although I guess what I found is actually U. Juncea Vahl: http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=UTJU&photoID=stju_001_avd.tif And Barry Rice's Utric fact's were quite helpful: http://www.sarracenia.com/faq/faq5630.html But, these flowers I photographed were taken mid-July and the Virgatula is described as flowering in September, unless it does a cleistogamous flowering habit that is seasonal? All the same, the photos came out nice & they look more Cornuta to me:
  10. Actually, I think I'll start with D. xBeleziana Now, for Pitcher Plants:
  11. Otherwise known as "Long Island Location 3" Keep in mind, I'm no ecologist nor am I a Botanist, just a guy with a camera who likes to explore and loves Carnivorous Plants! This is a site on the edge of a freely draining pond where there used to be a commercial Cranberry Bog. It's now a Suffolk County Park. There is what used to be a much larger location of S. Purpurea further upstream from this location. That site has been badly poached in the past and is in danger of disappearing completely due to overgrowth of competing vegetation... could seriously use a clearing! The site I photographed is a stand of Atlantic White Cedar growing on islands which are clumps of soil with heavy spagnum mats in between. Earlier in the Spring, there is water slowly flowing through channels here and there. By the Summer, it looks like static mud. You definitely don't want to step on anything that looks like mud here! There seems to be deer paths through the area and there is evidence of past human visits (probly hunters) but this site looks very wild and extremely seldom visited! I'll have pictures of the environment itself soon enough... for now, here's Pitcher Plants!
  12. Here is another location on Long Island, out in a State Park in Montauk, that has fantastic Filiformis!! They grow in a wet, sandy swath out in the sun and circle back into the bog and grow bigger and greener with Intermedia. There's another location nearby in another State Park with much bigger Filiformis and loads of them! These grow among grasses and other competing vegetation along with loads of Intermedia and tons and tons of Rotundifolia. There is another location of Filiformis on LI that I know of, but there's very few of them there... the so-called Coastal-Plains Ponds which are badly overgrown with no Plains whatsoever. The informational sign there says that they are common. Maybe they were at one time... land is managed by the Nature Conservancy too. These photos here are from the most stunning location in the open, sunny and sandy location in Montauk.
  13. Alexander, thanks for all the info! I have had an interest in the European dune CP's so that is all very interesting! I had a look at the website you sent and had it translated, but wasn't able to find CP. Hi Fernando, I suppose it could be, but it seemed that Rotund's grew around the pond, where Inter's grew at a puddle with wet soil around it sperated from the pond so I'm not sure... I do have some nice photos of definite and mature xBeleziana from other locations I'll be posting soon!
  14. Charles Brewer will be vending! Now's your chance to get some great Ceph's from the Man himself!
