Butterworts Pinguicula species are insect-eating plants
which are covered
with glands that exude a sticky substance to trap their
insect prey. The
leaves are arranged in a circular cluster at ground level
and these have rolled-in edges and a sticky greasy surface.
The flowers grow
singly at the top of slender stalks and they look much like
upper and lower lips and backward-pointing spurs. Many
Butterwort species grow
in bogs and wet places.
