The short needles of 'Nana' are four-sided and silvery blue-green to plain green.

(Butterwort)

This circumglobal genus encompasses some 50 species of wetland-dwelling insectivorous perennials, many of which are prized by collectors of carnivorous plants.

These moisture-loving plants form rosettes of oily, glistening, rounded to lance-shaped leaves laced with insect-snaring hairs and meat-digesting glands. The leaf margins roll inward to aid in digestion of trapped insects. Plants may overwinter as a fat bud-like rosette. In late spring or summer, solitary, two-lipped, often colorful flowers...

(Southern Butterwort)

Native to damp sites in the Gulf Coast region of the Southeast United States, this tender perennial is grown for its showy primrose-like flowers and its curious rosettes of insect-trapping leaves.

This evergreen perennial bears rosettes of fleshy, tongue-shaped, apple-green leaves that glisten with numerous blunt, droplet-producing, insect-snaring hairs. The leaf margins roll inward to further ensnare trapped insects, which are digested by glands on the leaf surface. Unlike many Pinguicula,...

(Common Butterwort)

Found in moist habitats in northern latitudes worldwide, this small insectivorous perennial is grown for its charming flowers and curious bug-trapping leaves.

This cold-hardy plant produces rosettes of greasy, tongue-shaped, yellow- to pale-green leaves that glisten with numerous blunt, droplet-producing, insect-snaring hairs. The leaf margins roll inward to further ensnare trapped insects, which are digested by glands on the leaf surface. The leaves die back in fall to a fat bud-like winter...

(Primrose)

This hardy Asiatic primrose offers a unique look and problem solving opportunities for poorly drained sites. It is native to moist alpine regions of India and Tibet in grassy slopes, forest margins and stream banks. The plant is composed of a rosette of oblong serrated green leaves. Its flower stems are dusted with striking white powder for increased graphic interest. This is technically a perennial plant, but it can become rather short lived in gardens.

(Japanese Primrose)

Lush, light green rosettes of leaves anchor the tall flower stems of Japanese primrose in mid- to late-spring. Its clusters of colorful purple-red blossoms are perched on tall, leafless stems that rise from the center of each rosette. This deciduous, clump-forming perennial is native to northern Japan where it lives in moist wooded areas. Today many cultivars are available with a wider range of colors and heights.

In early spring, the leaves of Japanese primrose are among the first to appear...
