    One of the famous "Queensland Sisters," this oft-nicknamed "Hen and Chicks" sundew develops rosettes up to 8" across (average 4-6") of semi-erect, paddle-shaped leaves that have skinny petioles and broad kidney-shaped lamina. Color is generally olive green with red tentacles, though can blush reddish under strong light. This species is famed for its scrambling, stolon-like flower stalks sporting tiny pink blooms and that will sprout new plantlets at the tips.

    Available plants are between 2-4" in diameter.

    Plants are shipped bare-root wrapped in a moist paper towel, via USPS Priority mail; I typically ship Monday-Wednesday to avoid weekend hold-overs. US shipping only.

    This is the plant formerly referenced as a supposed ultramafica hybrid, however appears to simply be a very vigorous spatulata form. Plants grow up to 3" in diameter, with semi-erect rosettes of narrow strap to wedge-shaped leaves. Color can turn solid red in even moderately strong light. Flower stalks are numberous, thin, and sport several small, self-pollinating white blooms.

    Available plants are small but mature, around 1.5" in diameter and may be flowering.

    An easy to grow if enigmatic species from southern China, this plant develops two kinds of rosettes, small flat ones in warmer conditions up to 2 inches across with paddle-shaped leaves, and semi-erect to erect rosettes up to twice as large with slender, elongated versions of the other form of leaf. Color can turn solid red in good light, and short, wiry stalks sport relatively large, very pale pink flowers with fat rounded petals.

    Available plants are  semi-mature to mature (flowering size), 1-2" in diameter.

    A truly unique hybrid with an appearance that can trick even the experienced eye; rosettes appear to reach up to 2 inches in diameter on average, may grow larger, but look almost purely like the pod parent with long, slender petioles tipped by oval or teardrop shaped lamina that splay out in all directions, semi-erect to flat. However, they have tiny hairs on them and flush redder than intermedia ever seems to, and send up spindly stalks bearing small, but pale PINK flowers. They don't tend to divide or bud quickly, making it good for a single-display plant.

    Available plants are semi-mature to mature, approx. 1.5-2" in diameter

    A rare hybrid made rigth here many years ago, slow to multiply for me (small plantlets can be touchy) but spectacular when mature. Plants may develop stems several inches tall with spreading leaves in a firework pattern around it up to 4 inches across, extremely narrow petioles with small hairs lining them and ovular lamina curling at the tips. Flowers are rare, sterile, forming in small numbers at the ends of curving stalks and bright pink.

    Available plants are young, around an inch tall and 1-1.5" in diameter.

    The reverse cross to the one that produced my cultivar 'Scarlet Tears,' this hybrid is a tropical x nagamotoi remake that produces rosettes averaging 2.5-4 inches in diameter with slender, semi-erect, paddle-shaped leaves that flush bright red in good light. Flower stalks are thin and fairly short, sporting a handful of either pink or white, sterile blooms.

    Available plants are semi-mature to mature, 2-3" in diameter.

    A rather unique hybrid that take the general appearance of aliciae and stretches it out, producing typically flat (though sometimes slightly raised up) rosettes up to 3 inches in diameter with slender, hairy, wedge-shaped leaves that are olive green with bright red flushes throughout, to even solid scarlet. Flower stalks are exceedingly long and slightly glandular, with large, pale pink sterile blooms.

    Available plants are semi-mature, between 1.5-2" in diameter.

    An interesting species closely related to D. nidiformis, natalensis, and possibly particularly dielsiana. Plants may reach 2-3 inches in diameter, with slender, semi-erect leaves in a rosette sporting long petioles and broad teardrop-shaped lamina. Coloration is unique, under strong lights developing red petioles, but green lamina with red tentacles. Flower stalks are somewhat short and slightly hairy, sporting several small pink blooms.

    Available plants are small but already showing mature signs like flowering, around 1-1.5" in diameter.

    An easy to grow cross and one that can at times get quite large, this hybrid develops semi-erect rosettes of leaves up to 3" across (average closer to 2") with a slender tapered shape and slightly broader tip of the leaf. Coloration in good light can be solid red with olive undertones. Flower stalks are moderately tall and sport several large, very pale pink sterile blooms. While attractive as an individual, each plant will also eventually divide or bud from old leaves and roots to form packed colonies.

    Available plants are semi-mature to mature, approx. 1.5" in diameter on average.

    The New Zealand highlands host several unusual and diminutive forms of this classic "spoonleaf sundew," sometimes with multiple distinct variants in any one site. This form from the far northern tip of North Island develops rosettes that rarely exceed 1.5" in diameter, with tapering wedge to semi-paddle shaped leaves painted in bright yellow-green and scarlet to solid poppy red. Tall (for the plant's size) wiry stalks bear several small, self-pollinating bright pink flowers. Note: the location is what this form was received as, but it is quite different from the "common form" of the same locale that more resembles other NZ varieties. Available plants are typically 0.75-1" in diameter, semi-mature to mature.

    This is an attractive and easy-growing hybrid between the occasionally touchy south-Chinese oblanceolata and what has been distributed as a possible ultramafica  hybrid, though is likely just a very attractive spatulata form. This cross grows to almost 4" in diameter maximum, developing semi-erect rising rosettes of slender, paddle-shaped leaves that in good lighting typically turn solid crimson. Flower stalks are moderately tall and sport a number of sterile, fairly large blooms so pale pink they often appear white. Great as an individual plant, they will often divide or bud from old leaves and roots to form colonies over time.

    Available plants will typically be between 1.5-2.5" in diamter, semi-mature.

    This triple-locality cross combines traits of Wentworth Falls and Woronorra river populations with the famed var. gympiensis spoonleaf sundew variety, producing flat, rosetted plants typically no more than 1.5" in diameter that sport narrowly wedge-shaped leaves typically colored solid red in good light. Thanks to that gympiensis parentage, flower stalks are rarely more than a couple of inches tall, occasionally hairy, and sport relatively huge flowers that, for most, are a brilliant pink hue. However, white forms occasionally show up as well, especially once new seeds are sown. This is a great form to build a colony display with, and readily self-seeds. Available plants are approx. 1" diameter, semi-mature to mature.

    A squat and rapidly growing version of this easy beginner's cross; plants average 1.5 inches in diameter or so, with spoon-shaped leaves in a flat rosette that will readily flush scarlet in good light. Flower stalks tend to remain under 8 inches tall, with a small number of bright pink flowers that will occasionally throw out a few seeds. These plants constantly bloom and divide, making thick colonies over time.

    This strange little hybrid appears to max out at around 1.5 inches in diameter, sometimes a bit more, with flat rosettes of slightly hairy leaves with lengthy petioles tipped in a short, triangular-shaped trap; I imagine they can at times also sport the semi-upright form of nidiformis, but I have not yet seen them do so. Color is primarily green but will flush a light red around the traps. Flowers are unknown, but likely fairly delicate and pale pink.

    Available plants are limited, approx. 1-1.5" in diameter.

    One of several iterations of this cross, this hybrid develops spreading 2-4" semi-erect rosettes of oar-shaped leaves, thick petioles supporting curving oblong lamina that fold outward, and in good light will regularly turn a bright yellowish green in the interior and flushed with red, sometimes almost solid red. Flower stalks can be quite large, and sport several sterile, moderately large pink flowers. This is a great plant for solitary display, though will often bud from the roots or old leaves to form colonies.

    Available plants will be semi-mature and approximately between 1-2" in diameter.
