Drosera sulphurea

Drosera sulphurea is an erect or scrambling species reaching up to 60 cm in height. This species produces bracts scattered along the lower half of the stem. The leaves are arranged in groups of 3 at the upper half of the stem. The tubers are yellow or yellow-blushed pink. This species can be distiguished from its closest relative D. neesii most prominently by tuber and flower colour: dark maroon (ssp. neesii) or white (ssp. borealis) tuber, pink petals.

Tubers may need to be kept moist during dormancy.


Emerging plant early in the season. Please note the bracts at the lower part of the stem.
