I admit I've never heard of it but like the vivid red colour , looks to have relatively large flowers on short stalks? Would be a bonus my book , thanks for sharing the pic

Not what I expected. Lovely little plant.

It's closest to D. trinervia, and I imagine it requires the same conditions.

I see the photo had made it into the new Drosera books, ownership of which, in my opinion, should be mandatory!

Kew's labelling has been iffy, to say the least, in the past, but the current team are working hard to get the collection back on its feet.
