It was a very long cold winter here in the UK. Many growers lost Sarracenia. The serious cold started in November and dragged on well into spring.
These plants have been confirmed as feral D.capensis. There have been several accounts of this species existent in this population and several other locations in California. I have been since given some leaf cuttings from this very location and they are 100% Drosera capensis. The 2 species are only superficially similar and really can not be mistaken to the trained eye.
