Australian Pitcher Plants (Cephalotus follicularis)

Cephalotus follicularisThe Australian Pitcher Plant (Cephalotus) is one of the most desired carnivorous plants in cultivation.  They are truly wonderful.  It is a curious pitcher plant of compact growth with bristly, colorful traps that are seemingly yawning for a bite to eat.  The plants grow naturally only in a narrow coastal strip in extreme southwestern Australia.  It is the only species in it's entire family and despite its very strong resemblance to Nepenthes, they have no close relatives in the carnivorous plant complex.
