    Looks like d. brevifolia, Glider. However, the flower stalks are not very clear. D. brevifolia is easy to distinguish from any other drosera as it is covered with miniscule glandular hairs, complete with mucilage! Look real close, and use a magnifying glass if you have to.

    Absolutely legal, Glider. Property owners can give you whatever they want that is living in the yard, back or front! If THEY own it is why. They can give you anything on their property because they own EVERYTHING that is on it, including d. brevifolia. Written documentation along with the plants is a VERY GOOD idea. Covers your behind. Send me a few of those, will you? Location info too for my records, if you can.

    Yeah, just get a couple for everyone on the boards.

    Steve: once they have acclimated to my condiditons and gotten over shipping shock i will send you a few. maby ill trade some for somthing

    EDIT:i was browsing for care info and almost none of the pictures online about D. Brevifolia look like mine. the petioles are longer and the tentacles dont go all the way the the growth point. *sigh* another mystery Drosera on our hands. onece they start to perk up i will get a closer picture

    Glider, its not a mystery. Just something unfamiliar to you. I am certain they are d. brevifolia, but also look into the ranges of d. capillaris, and see if that is more likely. HOWEVER! D. capillaris has pink flowers, not white. D. intermedia has white flowers, and are completely different looking from what you have. Brevifolia can have white flowers, or pink. D. brevifolia is very small! Less than an inch across, and more commonly, around 1/2 inch.
