Drosera bindoon

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

 

here are some pictures of this new species recently described by Allen Lowrie in his Magnum Opus. It is a orange flowered species, the closest relative is D. callistos. In my opinion it really is a beauty. Even better, it seems to be an easy grower, at least in my conditions.

 

The plants are greenish or yellowish green. Here are a couple of shots taken at the end of some gemmae season. The red colour of the outer gemmae is indicating that they are about to die (or already doing so):

The plants have a compact appearance the the inflorescence is shorter than for D. callistos. In addition, the sepal are quite hairy as you can see below.

The flowers are simply gorgeous:

I hope you like this one!

 

Cheers
