    Drosera rotundifolia 'Evergrow' is a hybrid cross of 2 populations of Californian D. rotundifolia (Gasquet CA X Willow Lake N. Plumas Co.) The resulting plants have forgone dormancy requirements. This is another of friend Ivan Snyder's experiments. I believe he has applied for cultivar status for the plant. Now people in the tropics can grow this beautiful species. The plants are smaller than the typical form (at least so far).

    Ivan shared some of the first seed with me, and I currently have some plants growing. I anticipate flowering this spring.

    Interestingly, Ivan noted some of the seed germinated while still in the seed pods. I had germination in less than 12 hrs. after sowing the seed, which is a record!

    Ivan has made this seed available in the past to LACPS members, and you might try the seedbank there if interested.

    Not having anything to do with the 'Evergrow' cultivar, but my little 'colony' of rotundifolias were all only an inch across, mature, this summer... They were a dark, purpley red, all over, very dewy, but only an inch across. Lots and lots of sun...

    Now. ABOUT the 'Evergrow' variety... Does it still have that 'instinct' entreched in it's self, like Intermedia 'Cuba' does? So that it may revert back to dormancy if not kept 'tropical' permanently?

    So far my plants show no inclination to go dormant.
