Carnivorous Plants at RHS Chelsea Flower Show- 05.21.12

carnivorousmain.jpg A little botanical inspiration from our London-based editor Justine Aw, who visited this year’s RHS Chelsea, which is open to the public from May 22nd to 26th.

As you know, here at NOTCOT, we adore our carnivorous plants (remember our own cape sundew? and trips up to California Carnivores?). Well, the carnivorous plants on display at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show did not disappoint. Although I only spotted two stands of carnivores on display, they were both stunning with some remarkable specimens from glistening sundews, to delicately drooping pitcher plants. Enjoy more photos of carnivorous plants at Chelsea on the next page!

Some of highlights from the gorgeous carnivorous plant display from Hewitt-Cooper Carnivorous Plants.

1 Notes

The plant on plates 8 & 9 is actually Cephalotus follicularis ( Albany Pitcher Plant) and I believe it’s not in the Sarraceniaceae. It has a monotypic taxon.
