The red sawtooth flytrap is a rare variant. It is red throughout, and the traps have finely serrations along the edges. Compared to some of the larger forms of flytrap, the red sawtooth flytrap is much smaller and slower growing. We've rarely seen this plant grow larger than 2-3 inches across. It's still unusual and makes a great addition to any cold hardy collection. Supply is limited.
