  Drosera spathulata / Komousengoke コモウセンゴケ

Drosera spathulata, a perennial of 5-15cm in height, occurs in sunny oligotrophic wetlands or damp clayey bare lands. Radical leaves, rosette-like, measure 2-4cm long, including petioles; the petioles are approximately two times as long as blades, but it is challenging to locate the border between them. The leaves are light green, tinging red, with long red glandular hairs all around that produce mucilage for catching insects. Racemes appear on scape tips which set about ten pale red 5-petaled flowers. Bloom time: June-September.
