Interesting Plants at Bowman’s Hill

on

Today, I’d like to share a few pictures from a recent trip to Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve. If you’re a plant enthusiast like me then you will enjoy learning about these unique discoveries. One of my favorite native plants is the pitcher plant that we found growing wild at Black Moshannon State Park on a camping trip a few years ago. Pitcher plants grow there because of the natural bog, and that’s why it’s on the list of 25 Must-see PA State Parks. I didn’t know the pitcher plant had flowers, so I was excited to see them. It’s a carnivorous plant, which means that it eats insects.

Another cool plant is the Dutchman’s Pipe. (More information below.) Both plants are so amazing, and I hope you enjoyed learning about them too.

    Very cool! I haven’t seen a Dutchman’s Pipe before. I did find a few Jack in the Pulpits the other day on a walk. Hopefully, I will get around to sharing those photos soon.

  2. I didn’t know Pipe Vines grew in PA. I have tropical ones here on the Gulf Coast.

  3. Beautiful and strange looking at the same time, like creatures from another planet.
