Of the 500 species of carnivorous plants in the world, 15 of them grow in Quebec, and more than half of these belong to the genus Utricularia.

Although Quebec does not have an especially large number of carnivorous plant species, the fact remains that they are easy to observe and very common in their habitats (especially peat bogs), both in the Montréal region and the far north. On your next flower-hunting excursions, take the time to admire them and learn more about them.
