Looks like a bog paradise. It's nice to see such a healthy expanse and gotta love those minks. I'm pretty sure the mystery plant with the red berries is bunch berry Cornus Canadensis. They're technically edible too.

some more pictures from the Alaska trip! Now personally, I don't like lugging around those heavy assault rifles when out in the wilderness, it's just a drag, and what if you have to make some quick decisions, it's so much easier just to whip out a .45, point it sideways like a 1990's compton-like gangsta, and get trigger happy. well, my friend prefers the scary, intimidating cannons that hurt your eye balls when you shoot them...maybe because you can't take down a grizzly with a .45 To each their own:
Now that you know you don't want to rob Mike Wang in the wilderness in Alaska, here's the real reason for this post-our beloved plants! ( my hat is now moved from the backwards thug position to the forward position and nerd glasses have been put on):
Random shot of some bog plants reveals a great deal of diversity:
some bear poo-they eat a lot of berries and whatnot when other food sources are more scarce:
Some really beautiful D. rotundifolia in situ shots:
D. anglica was up there too:
Lots of D. anglica! Check out the habitat, how cool is that?
Crappy picture, but reveals amazing growth preference:
There were soooo many droseras up in this bog:
Nature creates some of the most amazing works of art:
stu: Hi Mike: I’m pleased to report that the S. rubra wherryi Chatom Giant you sent has arrived in great shape as did the bonus plant from NC. Both are now back under southern skies and are feeling warm, humid, and at home again. Thanks!

sanguinearocks101: What are good plants to make hybrids with S. luecophylla with? Im looking for dark colors.

adaetz100: Sarracenia purpurea tends to add a lot of red/purple to its offspring, but there are some lovely dark red flava x leucophylla crosses too. Look up 'Royal Ruby' if you're not familiar with it already--it's a natural flava x leuco hybrid
