YELLOW BUTTERWORT

Florida native

Threatened Florida species
 

The only yellow-flowered of the butterworts found in Florida is listed by the state as threatened. The common name does not refer to the color of the flower, but instead comes from the sticky substance on the leaves that trap insects for this carnivorous plant to diegest.
