More than 25 native-plant enthusiasts met at Sumatra, Liberty Co., Florida, for a spring wildflower outing conducted jointly by the Sweetbay and Sarracenia Chapters of FNPS. Members of those chapters and the Magnolia Chapter, and a few people not in FNPS, explored a savanna and a bog in this recognized "hotspot" of botanical diversity. Both places were wildflower-rich. Among the field of attractions on every hand were eight species of carnivorous plants and a fine population of the endangered night-flowering wild petunia.
