This is one of the most beautiful butterworts we've encountered. The plant is a cultivated variety of Pinguicula zecheri x agnata. It has a tight rosette of large, broad green leaves. The leaves are very sticky and captures lots of gnats, mosquitoes, and fruit flies. The plant looks like a flower until you see it produce an actual flower. It's like a flower within a flower.
