Round-leaved Sundew

Drosera rotundifolia


A carnivorous plant with white flowers in a 1-sided, elongated cluster on leafless stalks rising from a rosette of small reddish, sticky, basal leaves. About 1/4 inch (6mm) leaves, circular,covered with glandular hairs exuding a sticky substance. Stalks about 1 1/2 inches (4cm) long. Height- 4 to 9 inches long (10-22.5 cm)




When I first started looking for this, I was looking for something bigger. It wasn't until I was hunting for (wild) cranberry flowers that I finally spotted the sundew. SOURCE: Nat'l Audubon Society- Field Guide to Wildflowers (Eastern Region) (Alfred A. Knopf)
