Audry II from Little Shop of Horrors. Hollywood's favorite carnivorous plant.

Triantha occidentalis also known as the western false asphodel is the world's newest carnivorous plant. You don't have to worry about one of these North American plants to devour your like Audrey II (Little Shop of Horrors), but if you're a fly or other small flying insect buzzing around the bogs of Vancouver, you better not land on one of these sticky monsters of the plant world.

“The plant’s been known for a long time, but it’s never been understood that it’s a carnivore,” says Sean Graham, a botanist at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver and coauthor of the new findings.
