Yellow Butterwort In Habitat
Painting - Watercolor And Gouache On Paper
This watercolor and gouache painting is one in a series of highly detailed and botanically accurate works that are the result of many hours spent studying and drawing both wild and cultivated plants.
This plants common name is "Yellow Butterwort" and it is in the genus Pinguicula. The plant pictured is Pinguicula lute, shown as I saw it in it's native habitat, which is the South Eastern coastal plain of North America. There are approximately 100 species of Butterworts worldwide. All derive extra nutrients by catching and digesting small insects on their sticky leaves.
Habitat destruction and illegal collecting is a threat to these often delicate and beautiful plants. Fortunately, many plants and cultivars are being grown all over the world by carnivorous plant enthusiasts and businesses who sell the plants. I have been growing, drawing and painting many different species of carnivorous plants since childhood and support the conservation of wetland habitat that these wonderful plants require to survive.
