Photo of the Day: Darlingtonia
These beauties are fine specimens of Darlingtonia californica, a.k.a. the California pitcher plant or cobra lily. While the plant itself is rather rare and hard to grow, it grows in coastal Oregon and Northern California in peat bogs. These lovely darlings can be seen very easily by a short (let’s say 5 minutes total loop) walk off the side of Highway 1 at the very small Darlingtonia State Natural Site, a small wayside that is actually a state park. It’s worth a look if you are near Florence, Oregon. In the filtered light of the bog, these beauties just about glow.
