The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Western Australia in 2007

Return to the Trip Overview

Red plant!
Phill drove us to to a quiet road bordering on a large flat area covered with grasses and other short plants. During the summer months this site is completely dry, but during the winter it is more like a vast vernal pool, with a scattering of Melaleuca trees and shrubby Leptospermum. And here you can see a beautiful, intensely red Drosera rosulata.

(Don't get distracted by any other Drosera in this image. We will get to them soon enough.)

Here is another image of the same beast, viewed from a slightly different perspective and image orientation.
