My guess is some species of St. John's Wort (Hypericum).

At first I thought this was a sedge but I can't find it in my books. It was growing in a boreal-type wetland with Labrador Tea etc. Any ideas?

Probably too late now but it would be nice to see a separate thread for wildflowers in the Forums.

This is the last wildflower I'll post from my recent trip up north so I'll wait until I have a few more to post before I start a thread. As for definitions it needn't be that complicated - flowers growing in the wild whether native, exotic or even invasive. A location and I.D., if available, would help. I'm hoping our tropical and southern hemisphere colleagues will pitch in during our lean days of winter. It will be good not to have to distinguish between "large" and "tiny" when posting a group of flowers from similar habitat. Anything from macros to wide shots to telephoto "macros" would be welcome. If anyone has any useful refinements to this definition I can incorporate them when the thread is started, but I think you'll get the idea.



This is a pitcher plant, which is a carnivorous plant (insects fall into the "pitcher" where they are dissolved by a pool of fluid). The pink plants are sundew which is also carnivorous (sticky leaves that enclose insects), and the yellow flowers are bladderwort - they have underwater bladders that suck in creatures as large as mosquito larvae. All on account of an impoverished environment - they have to get their nutrients from somewhere.
