Drosera rotundifolia / Mousengoke モウセンゴケ

Drosera rotundifolia is a perennial found in sunny wetlands from mountain regions through subalpine zones. Leaves are radical in a rosette way, with petiole 2-8cm long, in an obovate-like circular shape, with many long red-purple glandular hairs, from tips that produce mucilage for catching insects. Scapes measure 10-20cm long and bear racemes in a swirling way but gradually become straight. Flowers begin blooming from lower parts toward upward; petals are 5 in number, white, and 4-5mm in length. Bloom time: June-August.
