In June I traveled to the coast with a visiting friend. While hiking at the Carolina Beach State Park, we ran into a local who asked if we had seen any carnivorous plants during our hike. Venus flytraps are endemic to the area, but they are threatened due to poaching. We hadn’t seen any yet. He suggested we check out what he described as “the carnivorous plants near Whole Foods.” We were only there for a day trip and still had plans to swim in the ocean, so at first we didn’t pay much attention to his vague directions. Later in the day, we decided to check it out anyway – after a Google hunt, we discovered the place he was talking about, the Stanley Rehder Carnivorous Plant Garden. It was an whimsical little garden tucked away behind an elementary school, lush with a variety of carnivorous plants. It’s definitely worth checking out if you’re ever in the Wilmington, NC, area.
