Cobra Lilies along Whiskey Creek

Cobra Lilies along Whiskey Creek
As noted in a previous post, these unusual carnivorous plants grow only in serpentine soils, soils that are full of heavy metals like nickel and cadmium from the underlying serpentine rocks. We found them in northern California and again in southern Oregon, the only places they grow wild. In all the areas they are are protected and should not be removed, especially because they can be purchased easily enough from nurseries that propagate them.
