    ok well i bought a sundew last spring that i thought was Drosera spathulata [Edit: corrected D. spathulata to D. spatulata][For details, see: Plant Taxonomy] but recently i read on a couple sites that sell them they have pink flowers, my sundew has white flowers and i notcie the end of the leaves arent as round as i see in pics of Drosera spatulata so does this sounds liek any variation? or someone know what it is?

    Hi,

    As far as i know there are no var. of D. spatulata. I have no further information of these plants as i have received all the plants on this site as something else ( in these cases as Drosera natalensis 'Debbert' (DROS 2), Drosera sp "Auyan Tepui (DROS82) and Drosera "jacoby" (DROS13) ).

    I think, the plants from New Zealand usually flower white, but i'm not sure because i have yet to grow them.

    White flowered D. spatulata are most likely to be of New Zealand origin, although some white flowered examples are also found in Australia in the Queensland area. My cultivar Drosera 'Tamlin' is Australian in origin.

    The New Zealand forms present peduncles that are glandless and smooth looking and noticably lacking in red pigments in my collection. The actual buds tend to be more roundish to my eye.

    Below are 2 examples, the first from Ahipara, and the second from Mt. Ruahepu in NZ.
