General Description
 
This sundew has long thread-like leaves, which gives this plant its common name, dewthread. After a long winter dormancy, long thin leaves slowly rise from the resting bud, standing tall and proud in the late spring sunlight. Small drops of nectar glisten ever so slightly in the bright morning hours, enticing insects to taste its sweet offerings. By summer’s end, the plant is flecked with trophies of its conquests.

In winter, the leaves will die back, and the plant will form a resting bud sitting at soil level. Growth will resume in mid-spring.

Awesome August 21, 2016
Reviewer: Robert scott from Boise, ID United States  
Was not super excited about this but as my first sundew to add to my collection I have had a lot of fun watching this grow and catch everything that flys near it. I actually had to move it to a separate location in my yard because it was catching all the food for my fly traps! Turned out to be one of my favorite plants.

Look great June 6, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Lynnwood, WA United States  
I was a little worried about shipping sundews, but SNW pack their plants so well that the plant arrived stress free. I put them in my bog and both have taken off growing like crazy.
