The Darlings of the Valley

Don’t miss your chance to walk or stroll among the carnivores—the carnivorous California pitcher plant (Darlingtonia californica), that is. Also called the cobra lily or cobra plant, they can now be viewed in full bloom at the end of the one-eighth-mile boardwalk among towering pines at one of Southern Oregon’s most unique botanical features – Darlingtonia fens (wetlands). The Eight Dollar Mountain Botanical Wayside is near Selma off Redwood Hwy. at the beginning of the 7.5-mile TJ Howell Botanical Drive and is wheelchair accessible.
