CC is owned by horticulturist Peter D'Amato, carnivorous plant expert and author of The Savage Garden: Cultivating Carnivorous Plants. He operates the nursery alongside co-owner and chief plant propagator, Damon Collingsworth. Collingsworth also curated all of the photos in the revised edition of The Savage Garden. [1]
