Not Many People Know That A Deadly Garden Is Hiding Right Here In North Carolina
Did you know that the famous carnivorous plant, the Venus Flytrap, only grows in the wild in North Carolina? It’s true. And this “deadly” garden in Wilmington is beautiful proof. (Don’t worry, it’s only deadly to insects… and some other anthropods.) Take a look:
The Stanley Rehder Carnivorous Plant Garden at Piney Ridge Nature Preserve is located at 3800 Canterbury Rd., Wilmington, NC 28403. The parking area is shown above. It is maintained in a partnership between the City of Wilmington and The NC Coastal Land Trust. Learn more at this link on the official website of the NC Coastal Land Trust.
