Drosera tomentosa

(4 reviews)
This demure sundew is native to the mountainous regions of Brazil. It's not large and flashy like other sundews. Instead, it forms a rosette of flat leaves that lie close to the soil and reach a diameter of about 1/2 to 1 inch. It's unique feature that sets it apart from other sundews, however, is its hairy flower stalk. The stalk will tower 12 inches above the plant with pink flowers. All along the stalk are little hairs, making it a very unusual sight amongst sundews.
