You know, they are known as "ditch lilies" in a wide part of the US and that has to say something...if they grow in ditches, they must be able to tolerate/like wet soil. Great pics by the way! And you should check out carnivorous plants...they are all bog plants and I was amazed to find out how many there are, and a lot are native to the US. We've got a local grower here ...if I can find his address I'll pass it on to you.

I know here in Alabama we have quite a few carnivorous plants. I remember as a kid finding the "fly catcher" type of plants in the boggy areas we used to play in. I remember walking across the surface of the soil in those woods in many areas and if you were quick you would not sink, and the ground would just wave like you walking on jello.

I grew up in the mountains of western PA, so not at all familiar with bogs/swamps. I guess that's why I am both fascinated with bog plants and at the same time totally creeped out by swamps *LOL*.
