This species of Sundew had a rosette of rounded short-stalked leaves with red tipped glandular hairs. Each rosette had a single large white 5-petaled flower which seemed larger large in relation to the rosette of leaves. An attractive little plant.
Spotted along sides tracks on compacted moss covered soil - Cardinia Reservoir Park.

Also called tuberous drosera, lateral tubers are produced giving off daughters plants. This is an effective way of propogation as the plant is close to the ground and wind dispersation of seed is not possible. The plant produces very few flowers but open only one at a time.
Said to have scented flowers- will have a sniff next time ! http://www.tuberous-drosera.net/aberrans... Family: Droseraceae
