Botanists have a new, carnivorous plant. It is the western false asphodel. This a white flower that is relatively common along the coastline of the Pacific Northwest in the USA and on Canada's western coast. It actually first discovered in 1879, but botanists back then did not the innocuous-looking flower was actually a meat eater. Researchers have recently that sticky, tiny hairs along the bloom's stem a digestive enzyme that other carnivorous plants use to and insects. Professor Sean Graham, a botanist with the University of British Columbia, the NPR news agency: "We had no idea it carnivorous."

There are fewer than 1,000 carnivorous plant species to scientists. The western false asphodel is the first to be discovered in 20 years. Professor Graham believes there may more carnivores among our common flora. He said: "I that there might be more carnivorous plants out there than we ." He many people will be surprised that the familiar asphodel is actually a carnivore. Co-researcher Dr Qianshi Lin said: "What's particularly unique about this carnivorous plant is that it insects near its insect-pollinated flowers." He : "This like a conflict between carnivory and pollination because you don't to kill the insects that are helping you ."
