This dewthread hybrid is of the same parentage as Dreamsicle - Drosera filiformis var. floridana x tracyi, commonly referred to "californica". However, Creamsicle is not registered as a cultivar. The plant has pinkish orange colored thread-like leaves. It also clumps up readily and is quite tolerant of very sunny, warm conditions.
