Venus Flytraps are among the most famous of all Carnivorous Plants. Though all one species, there are many varieties and cultivars. Native to the coastal plains of North Carolina, the Venus flytrap is a cold-hardy perennial best grown outdoors in a container where it can experience the seasons. In summer, it likes it warm and very sunny. In fall, the plant stops growing and goes dormant. In winter, while dormant, it can withstand 20°F frosts with minimal protection. Look for new growth and flowering in the spring.
