NP041. Orchids / Fowler
Orchids, Carnivorous Plants, and Other Wildflowers of the Green Swamp, North Carolina: Exploring North America’s Most Diverse Ecosystem by Jim Fowler.
2015. 352 pages, 370+ color photographs and illustrations.

"The Green Swamp Preserve of southeastern North Carolina supports our finest examples of species-rich pitcher plant bogs in North America. Jim Fowler presents luscious photos of every species of orchid and carnivorous plant (including the wonderful Venus’ flytrap), along with selected gentians, lilies, milkworts, composites, and others in this gorgeous book suitable as a field guide with keys and habitat notes. After seeing these extraordinary pictures you will want to visit the Green Swamp to learn how the ancient elements of earth: air, fire, and water combine to create such a unique and beautiful environment filled with so many special plants." Larry Mellichamp, botanist, author of Native Plants of the Southeast (NP001).

NP024. Wildflowers of the Coastal Plain / Neyland
Wildflowers of the Coastal Plain: A Field Guide by Ray Neyland. Paper

Provides detailed information on 535 species of herbaceous plants, vines, and shrubs. The coastal plain extends from southeast Texas eastward to Florida (including the Mississippi River flood plain stretching southward from southern Illinois). It embraces all but the southern tip of the Florida peninsula and proceeds up the eastern seaboard into southern New Jersey and includes parts of Long Island and Cape Cod. This indispensable guide catalogs the native flora, as well as the naturalized species found throughout the far-flung but unified coastal plain.

Each illuminating entry includes a vivid color photograph of the wildflower in its natural setting, the plant's scientific and common names, and a precise description of the species, including its range and blooming time. Some entries describe modern and historical applications for the plants -- such as use by Native Americans for food or medicine -- and mention closely related species to prevent confusion in identification. The volume's simplified glossary and a series of line drawings explain essential botanical terms. Dichotomous keys facilitate a helpful step-by-step identification method, allowing readers to begin with what they know -- a flower's color -- and then follow a process of elimination (Is the plant aquatic or not? Are the leaves fan shaped or linear?).
2009. 337pp. 6 x 9 inches.

NP045. Savage Garden, Revised / Peter D'Amato
The Savage Garden, Revised: Cultivating Carnivorous Plants by Peter D'Amato
2013. 384 pages. 6.1 x 9 inches. Paper

For fifteen years, The Savage Garden has been the number one bestselling bible for those interested in growing carnivorous plants. This new edition is fully revised to include the latest developments and discoveries in the carnivorous plant world, making it the most accurate and up to date book of its kind.

You may be familiar with the Venus flytrap, but did you know that some pitcher plants can—and do—digest an entire rat? Or that there are several hundred
species of carnivorous plants on our planet? Beautiful, unusual, and surprisingly easy to grow, flesh-eating plants thrive everywhere from windowsills to outdoor container gardens, in a wide variety of climates. The Savage Garden is the most comprehensive guide to these fascinating oddities, gloriously illustrated with more than 200 color photos. Fully revised with the latest developments in the carnivorous plant world, this new edition includes:
-- All the basics—from watering and feeding to modern advances in artificial lighting, soil, and fertilizers.
-- Detailed descriptions of hundreds of plants, including many of the incredible new species that have been recently discovered and hybridized.
-- Cultivation and propagation information for all the plant families: pitcher plants, Venus flytraps, sundews, rainbow plants, bladderworts, and many other peculiar plants from the demented mind of Mother Nature.

Whether you’re a beginner with your first flytrap or an expert looking for the latest exotic specimen, this classic book has everything you need to grow your very own little garden of horrors.
