The Carnivorous Plant FAQ v. 12

Q: Where do false asphodels (Triantha) live?

Triantha (at center)
A: The genus Triantha occurs throughout much of Canada (all the geographical regions, except Nunavut), and many parts of the USA. (More details are given the complete write up, later in the FAQ.)

The genus contains four species, but only one has published data indicating that it is carnivorous--Triantha occidentalis. This species is found in Canada (British Columbia, Alberta) and northwestern USA (Oregon, California, Alaska, Idaho, Washington, Montana, Wyoming).

In these habitats, Triantha occidentalis is found in wetland seepages and fields, although occasionally it is recorded in non-wetland sites as well.
