    Capensis varieties and locality list.

    These are all the varieties that I have seen or researched, this is a fully up to date list, and I hope many of you find it helpful.

    Nearly all varieties are unofficial, some not well described, and others hardly described at all. So far 'Albino' is the only variety with an official status.

    I took giant off the list, because many if not all of the giant varieties are just plants from certain locales.



    Drosera capensis varieties

    Drosera capensis "Broad leaf" Wide leaves, grows upright
    Drosera capensis "Wide leaf" Wide leaves, particularly on the petiole, may exhibit prostrate growth
    Drosera capensis "Narrow leaf" Small and narrow leaves with typical coloration
    Drosera capensis "Compact Rosette" Compact form
    Drosera capensis "Rot" Compact form
    Drosera capensis "Alba narrow leaf" Small and narrow leaves with 'Albino' coloration
    Drosera capensis "Red narrow leaf" Small and narrow leaves with all red coloration
    Drosera capensis 'Albino' or "Alba" Lack of red pigmentation, may display pink tentacles in bright light
    Drosera capensis "Red" or "All red" Exhibits dark red coloration
    Drosera capensis "Big Pink" Result of either 'Albino' x "All red" or spontaneous mutation of selfed 'Albino' large pink or red
    Drosera capensis "Mini Red" Dwarf red form
    Drosera capensis "Triffid Rose" Result of "Broad leaf" x "All red"
    Drosera capensis "Dark maroon plant" (BZ Bonn clone) Red plant, relatively undescribed
    Drosera capensis "Long arm" Meadowview, possible variant with long and slightly narrow leaves
    Drosera capensis "Bain's Rocket" Compact wideleaf form, possibly with hair and stemming
    Drosera capensis "Rocket" Compact stemming form with wide leaves
    Drosera capensis "Sunset" Result of "All red" X "Alba" large and retains albino coloration
    Drosera capensis "Minor" Very small dwarf form
    Drosera capensis "Hairy" Forms hairs along petiole, pronounced on new growth

    Aren't the Bainskloof plants different from normal capensis as well?

    Yup that one just slipped my mind. I've heard rumors that the seed isn't fertile, but I have Bainskloof seed, so we'll have to see about that.

    Just added it to the list.

    Yes, the normal capensis from Blaines Kloof area look somewhat different being slightly bigger with wider leaves. There is also hybrid capensis 'sunset'
    - "Broad Leaf"
    - "Wide Leaf"
    - 'Albino'

    Ah! I was wondering about that. I knew that Alba was the same as white form but wasn't sure if it was also albino.

    'Albino' is the official cultivar name for the white-flowered cape, "alba" is the commonly seen name of reference. It has pink tentacles in full sun, so not truly antho free however.
    Off the top of my head I can't think of any other forms....
    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.

    From what I've read, there are several very different plants circulated with the location tag "Bainskloof." Some have short, wide leaves and grow very compactly while others have extremely long, thin petioles.
