This sundew has long thread-like leaves, which gives this plant its common name, dewthread. Long thin leaves slowly rise, standing tall and proud. Small drops of nectar glisten ever so slightly, reflecting the sun's rays and enticing insects to taste its sweet offerings. By the end of summers, the plant is flecked with trophies of its conquests. In winter, the plant will die back and form a resting bud sitting at soil level. Growth will resume in mid-spring.

Type of Plant: Outdoor perennial for container growing.
Leaves: Up to 8 inches at maturity.
Sunlight: Partial to full sun during the growing season.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts peat moss and perlite only.
Winter: Dormant. Minimal protection in USDA zones 7-9. Mulch in colder regions.

    Plant arrived dormant and has not come out of dormancy.

    Posted by Henry Lum on April 3, 2023

    Two stars because the plant has not yet come out of dormancy. So I really don’t know yet what will come of it. *** RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST *** Yeah, these plants sure can take their time coming out of dormancy! We don't have any control over that. Patience is a definitely a trait needed when growing some of these outdoor perennials. Make sure to watch our monthly care videos. Only a few of our hardy sundews are waking up right now. Most won't wake up until the end of April.

    Plant came very well packaged and healthy and unstressed. It recovered and began producing “dew” within a couple of days. It also tolerates central Texas heat, humidity, and light ver well. It is definitely my most robust drosera.
