Tracy's sundew

Drosera filiformis var. tracyii


A species of sundew, it is unusual within its genus in that the long, erect, filiform (thread-like) leaves of this plant unroll in spirals - an arrangement similar to the circinate vernation seen in ferns.

This was a lovely surprise this morning - Karen, thanks for selecting this series as SOTD and to all of you for your nice comments! It's a fascinating plant and having a macro lens for such shots would be great (I took these using a zoom lens!). Glad that you enjoyed seeing this! :>)
