    Yes you can find venus fly traps in America.  In fact, fly traps are native to North Carolina, specifically a “very localized range in the Outer Coastal Plain and Sandhill regions within a 100-mile radius of Wilmington [NC]” (UnitedPlantSavers).  About 50% of the venus fly trap population is found in the Holly Shelter Game Reserve close to Wilmington.

    The venus fly trap is actually native to a region in North and South Carolina. It is mentioned in Darwin’s “Insectivorous Plants” specifically. It has been transplanted to regions all over the world, and seems to thrive in areas where nitrogen is not plentiful in the soil, like bogs and marshes.
