Drosera filiformis var. floridana, "White Flower"

(28 reviews) Write a Review
This variety of Drosera filiformis is similar to the typical form but has dark red leaves. In time, the plant will produce a crown up to an inch across and leaves up to 8 inches tall. Give this plant LOTS of sunlight to maintain its beautiful red leaves. Never underestimate how much this plant loves sunlight! The particular form we carry produces white flowers in early summer.

    Sarracenia is #1, HANDS DOWN!

    Sarracenia is by far the best, when it comes to carnivorous plants. I accidentally came across their website about 6 months ago and ever since then I've been completely satisfied with the customer service, quality of the plants I've ordered/received and their knowledge and care of carnivorous plants. I recommend them over any other company. Keep up the great work!
