Lovely photos but who's been playing silly beggars Nd planting VFTs?

Are there many of them or just very occasional specimens?

Cheers

Looks like someone's VFT has escaped into the wild... Great images and I must really start looking for wild CPs, more so now I know VFT's have made it out and about.

The VFTs were planted years ago. There were a couple of sarracenia flava as well. They might have been removed

there are only 4-5 VFTs,

Im really impressed how big they are & the fact that they are still there!!

I first encountered them in 2010 & we have had some really bad winters since then

Still going strong after years but planted out by someone :( I liked the idea of them making a break for it. At least I guess there isn't much chance of them becoming and invasive species.

Very strange those Dionaeas far from there homeland! And the habitat in the Carolinas is very differend from that English bog. Last year I saw them at 2 places in the wild there.

 

That they have not removed them allready from that bog. Especially as there is also growing the rare Drosera anglica, well in my country its rare. And that the VFTs have survived the cold recent winters. They are not that coldhardy is my experience.
