Overview

This carnivorous plant occurs only on the Table Mountain complex in the Western Cape. It grows in the rainy winter season and usually goes dormant in the dry summer season. It flowers late spring to summer, producing pink or purple flowers. This Sundew as do all others, have glands on their leaves which act like external stomachs: it captures prey on the sticky mucilage, curls over the insect to bring it in closer contact with the glands and tentacles, and secretes enzymes to digest its prey.
