pitcher plants

Delving into the archives this winter, I found these photos of pitcher plants from the Fernery House at Pukekura Park and thought I'd share them with you. They are definitely different! Here's a link if you want to know more about them.

This is one weird looking flower - and I've seen some odd ones!

Your pitcher plant is fascinating. Great photos! Thank you so much for sharing with Today's Flowers and I wish you a very happy week.

Very different flowers. Since they 'eat' meat, they seem scary for me.
Thanks for stopping by.

I had a Nepenthes for a while, I love the pitchers, and not having to have them outside in the winter. I'm happy to see all your lovely pods, they are really blooming!

Super cool plants. I've seen the Darlingtonia plants before and found them fascinating too.
