Round-Leaved Sundew

Drosera rotundifolia


You can really see where sundews get their name!


Sundews are commonly found in boggy areas in British Columbia. Here in the Great Bear Rainforest, they seem to thrive in the many acidic bogs that dot the coast!


Round-Leaved Sundews (Drosera rotundifolia) are beautiful, carnivorous plants commonly found in many parts of British Columbia. Each leaf (pictured here) is smaller than a fingernail and is covered in red hair-like projections that secrete liquid to trap and digest insects. They also have medicinal properties and have been used as an anti-inflammatory, a topical wart remover, and to treat respiratory problems!
