More wild drosera!

I went for a nature walk last weekend and found so more wild drosera! I think I found some d. intermedia and d. rotundifolia. I'm still learning on how to recognize them, but I'm getting better.

You may not be able to tell the types in the photos I've attached, but you can still see their bright red leaves. I also attached a photo of the location. :)

It was really neat to see them, once I found one I then found hundreds! I can't wait for next summer when I can see them flowering now that I know what to look for!

hi, do you have pictures of intermedia? Because I only see rotundifolia, because I never seen wild intermedia.

Funny, because I see only young D.intermedia on those pictures. But maybe that explains it...;)
I *think* there were only a few rotundifolia. But they were less than an inch in width. The leaves were pretty rounded compared to the slightly elongated intermedia leaves. I could absolutely be wrong though. I took photos with my phone so photos aren't super great haha

There ya go! I find they look so similar! I didn't see any large clumps of plants, only littles. I'll go back late spring/early summer next year to see if I can find more. It's getting too cold now to go out.

I know what you mean! I went on a hike a few years ago that claimed to have native carnivorous plants, so I excitedly went on the hike. I was near the end and very upset that I hadn't seen anything, when I arrived in a clearing in the woods and the ground was red from all the drosera. I've been back a few times since (and do the hike backwards, lol). I've never been able to time it properly to see the flowers though, I basically avoid the area until late August because the mosquitoes are thick earlier in the season.
