Well great detail, especially large.
My guess is some cross breed between a Gooseberry and a Red Onion.

almost disturbingly strange, I'm thinking triffids or pods from the bodysnatchers, except I bet they don't allow them in shows Wink fascinating plant well captured

I have no idea what it is called I only know it is some kind of insect trap plant. They had them at the Durham Botanical gardens but I never got the name. Great shot of it Annette.

It's certainly a type of fly catcher and on the thumbnail I thought "Boxing Gloves"

Did you spend a fortune at the show?

20 Sep 2007 11:02AM
Hi Anne, It's an alien methinks trying to make ballet shoes for boxers... whatever it is and I see now on reading above, that its a pitcher plant, its rather fab. helen x

Fine shot....they are just amazing. It is some type of tropical pitcher plant I think. There was one on display at our spring flower show, and I was fascinated with it. Nice capture of the interesting details.
