Darlingtonia by Natch Greyes - Apr 16, 2014 by Webmaster
NECPS member Natch Greyes has written a new book all about Darlingtonia californica, the California pitcher plant. From it's description:

Darlingtonia californica. The California Pitcher Plant. The Cobra Lily. Chrysamphora californica. This fantastic carnivorous plant has captured the minds of botanists, carnivorous plant enthusiasts, and the public since its discovery in 1841. Darlingtonia californica is a rare plant, found only on the upper California and Oregon coasts and in the nearby mountain ranges. In the wild, it can often be found along slow streams in the northern Sierra Nevada and Coast Mountain Ranges. In cultivation, it can be found across the world. This book covers everything from the discovery of Darlingtonia to its cultivation. It is filled with fascinating tidbits about the different varieties and habitats of Darlingtonia.

Natch Greyes is a New Hampshire Attorney and carnivorous plant collector. His blog, Natch Greyes’ Carnivorous Plants, is one of the most read blogs about carnivorous plants. As an active member of the New England Carnivorous Plant Society, he has facilitated efforts to revitalize the University of New Hampshire’s carnivorous plant collection.

This  new book is available now on and elsewhere.
