Brunswick County, NC

Brunswick County, North Carolina, is one of the most botanically interesting places you can go. It is the home of Venus flytraps, pitcher plants, sundews, and several other species of carnivorous plants. Native orchids are well represented as well. It isn’t even necessary to go to a park or reserve; if you look carefully, you will see many of these plants along the roadsides throughout the county. I visit as often as I can—it is just south of Wilmington, or about an hour or so north of Myrtle Beach.
