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.
