    Here is Ivan's white flowered plant as of 24 Aug 2010. He did not get a photo of the flower in bloom:

    I think the 'Paddle' is one of the most attractive of sundews.

    I thought it was spelled as D. Xbeleziana (an I instead of an E)

    To quote taxonomist Dr. Jan Schlauer:

    1. The name "beleziana" was coined by E.G. Camus (in Morot, Journal
    de botanique, 5: 198, 1891) to commemorate the collector, Ms Beleze
    (not "Belez" nor "Belezi" that would have justified the epithet
    "beleziana"), and must for orthographical reasons be spelled
    "belezeana".

    2. The plant by this name is most probably not the hybrid that Camus
    hypothesized. See his figure, which probably only depicts a malformed
    _D. rotundifolia_ with an ascending scape (note that two scapes of
    the same rosette are straight!):

    http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/item/22090#208

    The leaves in artificially created hybrids between _D. rotundifolia_
    and _D. intermedia_ always have a longer cuneate base to the lamina
    and usually the lamina is longer than wide. In the picture the leaves
    show the normal condition in _D. rotundifolia_. _D. belezeana_ plants
    were allegedly always sterile (indicating hybrid origin) but _D.
    intermedia_ is highly questionable as a parent species. Unfortunately
    no type specimen could be traced so far for _D. belezeana_.

    Probably a new name needs to be established for true hybrids between
    _D. intermedia_ and _D. rotundifolia_.
    Note: Dr. Frankensnyder has crossed artifical/man-made D. rotundifolia x D. intermedia but he has them all given away.

    Some progress photos on the D. x tokaiensis:

    These started to flower in October and haven't stopped yet. Otherwise I'd repot them. I managed to catch one of the flowers partially open in November. Since these are pink flowered as the naturally occurring plants they will not be treated with Colchicine to make the fertile. The small sibling has yet to show its colors.


    A couple of shots as of today. The colors are no where near what they look like in sunlight (new camera and still tweaking). The reds are actually more of a dayglow fuschia.


    The tetraploid D. belezeana is dormant and in the refrigerator. Not very interesting to see.
