This year’s Plants With Bite show at Mount Tomah took place, if I remember correctly, in the first two weeks of March.
The lovely four-year-old seed-grown Cephalotus follicularis above was sold within half an hour of being put on display. I should know; I bought it.
There are now three Cephalotus of varying colours in my collection, including a mostly green one. Here’s another photo of the same plant, which is now larger and healthier than it was when I took the picture (in the spring when it hadn’t yet been moved into the new shadehouse).
This young plant is a cross between N. hamata and N. platychila. Oh, what lovely tentacles it has, at the top of the pitcher lid. And oh, what a lovely jagged peristome it’s going to have when it grows up.
Sarracenia psittacina is unique in its class, with its lobster-pot trap design.
