    help with some drosera and a sar.

    Hey I got this drosera as a freebie with a sarracenia ladybug i got from a local nursery. Its got me stumped. Im thinking spatulata or rotundifolia. Its got a few flower stalks with pink flowers. The main reason i want to know is because I dont know if it will be able to handle the upcoming south carolina winter. Any help is appreciated.




    also i have these drosera too. they were all red when they got full sun.


    and this little sarr... i think its a purp but the leaves look like a ladybug... it recently just popped up by my ladybug but i did put shreds of a purp rhizome there too... any ideas? can purp pitchers look like this while it is stressed?

    The first is D. tokaiensis. Depending on whether or not the flowers produce seeds, it could be the species or the hybrid (the hybrid is not fertile). The second plant looks very similar to my capillaris, and the Sarr, could be an offshoot from you Ladybug, but the pitchers need to get bigger (and a little more light) for a certain ID.
    The sundews should survive winter, as capillaris can be found native to SC, and tokaiensis can go dormant in winter, as one parent is rotundifolia.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    ok so the sar. is definitely a purp. a new pitcher has come up and its an obvious purp. Now will both the hybrid/ species tokaiensis go dormant? and i thought the red ones were capillaris.

    The species is an alloploid of the hybrid, so they're nearly the same genetically (just one has double the genes). Since one parent was originally rotundifolia, both species and hybrid should have the ability to go dormant, though they will not tolerate temperatures as low as a rotund would.
