Drosera neesii

D. neesii was so far split into two subspecies with the main differences being the length and the white or pink colour of the tubers (D. neesii ssp. neesii and D. neesii ssp. borealis). Allen Lowrie now describes them as a single species.
D. neesii is an erect species rarely leaning on nearby bushes or grasses for support. It usually grows 30 to 45 cm tall. The closest relative is D. sulphurea which can be easily distinguished by the flower colour (D. neesii pink, D. sulphurea yellow).

The tubers of this species are dark maroon (or white).

D. neesii mostly grows its stem while the leaves have not yet fully fully developed.
