General Description
 
This is probably the most eye-catching of the temperate sundews. Adult plants get up to 3 inches tall and 3 inches in diameter. Its uniform shape gives it the appearance of a miniature tree. The only difference, of course, is that this tree sparkles in sunlight! It also curls itself around captured insects.

In the wild, this sundew is found in parts of boggy areas that are often flooded with an inch or two of water, hence its common name. With this particular sundew, keep the water level fairly high, about 3/4 of the way up the pot.

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.

Reviewer: Frank Chiafari from Brookfield , CT United States  
Plant arrived healthy and well packed as usual. I have it in full sun with water 3/4 filled in tray. It is glistening with dew and catching many insects. Thank you for your high end good quality plants.
