The four carnivorous plants represented on these stamps are native, but not necessarily restricted, to North America. The Venus Flytrap, Dionaea muscipula, is found in moist, sandy areas near the coast from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, to central North Carolina. Found in the southeastern United States, the Sarracenia flava, also known as the trumpet or Yellow pitcher plant, grows up to 24 inches tall. Darlingtonia california, also known as the cobra lily, is native to the West Coast. The English sundew, Drosera anglica, is a small plant that uses its sticky leaves to trap insects and is found in mossy bogs across northern latitudes of the United States and along the West Coast as far south as California.
