As an addendum to Steven's comprehensive account of our running around the
Okefenokee I have a short list of plants that my wife Ruth collected and has
pressed. It's kind of fun because we found at least three species of
carnivorous plants, which are found in poor-quality acidic sandy soils
typical of much of the Okefenokee. So ---

Sarracenia minor, hooded pitcher plant (carnivorous).
Drosera rotundifolia, sundew (carnivorous).
Viola primulifolia (or lanceolata), lance leafed violet
Viola rafinesquii, a violet with no common name; this one was found by Dick
Stober who as usual displayed a sharp eye.
Utricularia inflata, bladderwort (carnivorous).
Sisyrindium macronatum, var. atlanticum, blue eyed grass.

This list is short because Ruth only collected plants in flower. Needless to
say, these species were found either in the water or along the shoreline. I
hope that one of my photos of the sundews will be posted soon, along with
other shots.
