Climbing Sundew Flowers

Recently, on sunny winter days, the Climbing Sundew (Drosera macrantha) flowers open into beautiful, clear white blooms.  I’ve posted photographs of Sundew flowers before. They are one of my favourite wild flowers.  In addition to the beauty of the flowers, they have fascinating leaves. Designed to catch insects, the leaves of the Climbing Sundew are round, concave and fringed with sticky red ‘hairs.’  Other species of Sundews have differently shaped leaves.  I will post photos of some of these species when they come into flower.
