Pinguicula belongs to the Lentibulariaceae family. It is a herbaceous compact perennial. This plant can be found in nature in swampy sections of the Northern Hemisphere's temperate regions.
Butterworts, unlike the other representatives of their family, have real roots. The leaves form a rosette at the base. Thick rosettes with a height of up to 6 in (15 cm) are made up of sheet plates. In the spring, tall flower stalks emerge from the center of the leaf rosette, reaching a length of around 1 in (0.4 m). On their tops, tiny purple flowers open. You can find variants with yellow, white, pink, and blue flowers in natural settings.
