Pictured below


DARLINGTONIA CALIFORNICA
, also called the California Pitcher plant, Cobra Lily, or Cobra Plant, is a carnivorous plant, the sole member of the genus Darlingtonia in the family Sarraceniaceae. It is native to Northern California and Oregon, growing in bogs and seeps with cold running water. This plant is designated as uncommon due to its rarity in the field.

    
    
Two of Mike's discoveries use to be visible from the road or the trail, but the growth of weeds made them inaccessible.
