Drosera capensis, commonly called cape sundew, is a carnivorous, herbaceous perennial native to marshes, seeps, stream banks, and in other moist, open habitats in the Cape region of South Africa. Mature plants will reach up to 6" tall and spread to form equally wide clumps. The leaves have 2" long petioles (leaf stalks) and 2" long, narrowly oblong to linear blades covered in sticky, glandular, red hairs used to capture insects. The foliage emerge from a stout, thickened, 1-2" tall stem to form a rosette. The 1" wide, pink flowers are held above the foliage in a loose raceme atop a 6-12" tall scape. The main bloom period is from late spring into autumn, and in the wild can vary depending on the weather.
