"Savage Gardens" was a 2013-2014 exhibit at the San Antonio Botanical Garden that featured carnivorous plants. Huge sculptures, many 10 feet across, brought from an insect's perspective carnivorous plants like the Venus Flytrap, Pitcher Plant, Trumpet Plant, and Sundew.

Here's the common sundew, Drosera rotundifolia. I thought it was the very best of the sculptures.

Here's a photo of an actual sundew. A typical plant has a diameter of around 1 to 2 inches.
