D. spatulata var. gympiensis ´Gympie, QLD, Australia´

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

after a longer time i´ve found a little bit time to take some pictures.

Today i´ve been lucky to see one of the flowers completely opened, normally i´m returning home when they are not any longer fully opened.

In my opinion this is the most beautiful D. spatulata; it has a relatively short flower stalk, it´s hairy and the sepals are hairy too and it´s the most colourful flower i´ve seen till now in the spatulata-complex. It´s even darker than on the pictures, but my camera has had problems with the exact colour.

The first pictures are indoor pictures the last one are taken outside.

A lovely Drosera.

I was lucky enough to see this plant in the wild at Gympie, Queensland a couple of years ago and shall never froget it. Completely different to the form found on Frasers' Island, just a bit further north.

Thanks for showing

Congrats Dani!! What a beautiful plant this is, it deserved to be a species, not variety!

Thanks Fernando. :yes:

yes, i also think so, the very big differences in comparison to all other spatulata i´ve seen till now should be reason enough, but.... :P

Best regards,

Hi Daniel,

That is a very nice Spatulata indeed! Lovely hairy flower stalks :yes:

Is this variety a "weed" like the others?

Dont forget to show some south american drosera next time :P

Many thanks Anderson and Sebastian. :yes:

It´s not a "weed" like all the others, but of course it´s producing seed without any problems. Somehow the seed is not falling out of the dried seed capsule. Also the flower stalks are too short as if seed could fall into the pot next to the pot these plants are growing in.

So i´ve no spatulata var. gympiensis invasion till now. :P

From all the other forms i´m growing till now you can find plantletts in pots where they should not grow.

Anderson, of course i´ll show soon pictures of some south american Drosera as well. A few beauties have flowered during the last weeks and in the moment too.

Best regards,

Dani
