    This was given to me and identified by that generous person as a D. filiformis red variety. Now that it has flowered can anyone confirm that as fact?

    The flower.


    The plant.


    Its' dinner.


    Can anyone identify the insect? I am curious as it captures two or three a week and is the only one of my dews that do. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] A poet I am not.

    Jason, I was referring to part of my last sentence, "dews that do". [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Well, it's the plant that would ID whether it was a red or not.
    I have no idea, as the plant does not look that red. Is it grown in full sun?
    That aside, I think it's a kick-butt plant! Anything that can catch crane flies is cool in my book, and it looks very erect and healthy!

    Cheers,

    Joe

    This has the more delicate look I have come to associate with the red form from Washington County, Florida. You will know more this fall if the plant doesn't form a hibernacula (although some individuals do make hibernacula) you may assume it is correctly labeled. I see no reason to question that at this stage of things though. Nice looking plant!

    Speaking of plays on words, was the fly named after Philip?
