General Description
One word describes this plant - spectacular! Drosera multifida extrema is a type of fork-leaf sundew, and like its relatives has long slender red leaves that branch out multiple times. But on this special plant, it's not unusual to see as many as 36+ points on each leaf!

This particular clone has genetic origins in Evan’s Head, a coastal colony of D. multifida “extrema” in New South Wales, Australia. The Evans Head form is different from the common form circulated in US collections in several ways. Firstly, in optimal conditions, the plant flowers continuously for us, sometimes self-pollinating and producing seeds. The flowers are primarily white, but in cool conditions can express the slightest pink hue, a trait generally unknown in this variety.

Forks of the leaves, instead of extending laterally as in typical forms, are pointed outwards, away from the plant, forming a sort of cup-shaped web. It grows somewhat slower than the common form, remaining more compact and upright for longer before achieving the long, pendulous leaves that the variety is famous for. In the end, the common form and the Evan's Head form both reach the same size, and both are just as vigorous.
