Drosera auriculata

Ranging across most of eastern Australia, and also in New Zealand, Drosera auriculata is one of the easiest tuberous sundews to grow. It will stand constant moist conditions, simply dying back for a short dormant period in mid summer.

Sometimes treated as a subspecies of Drosera peltata, it differs in having glabrous (hairless) sepals.

Although sometimes white, the flowers are often pink tinged, or pink.

I Have grown a few seedlings from a stock that originated in Auckland, New Zealand. They have been very slow to develop!

Unexpectedly, seed that fell onto the water surface has germinated and grown well.
