Before you go crazy, trying to do everything you can in order to find someone who can provide you with Drosera erythrorhiza subsp. collina "salmon leaves" or "pink and orange leaves," relax. I am pretty sure that these plants are normally green, and it is just that as the plants approach dormancy the leaves turn colors as the valuable photosynthates are translocated into the tuber.
