Drosera erythrorhiza - Check this one out!

I have yet to add this lovely specimen to my collection. This Western-Australian sundew forms rosettes about two inches across with bright red banding on the edges of each leaf. This sundew grows in the winter and goes into dormancy by forming a tuber to survive the hot, dry Australian summer.

Hey, and just a comment on the picture. It's not mine. I don't know where it came from originally. If it's yours leave a comment and I'll give you attribution (or pull it if you prefer).
