About

Drosera glanduligera growing on the foothills of Mount Cameron, in northeastern Tasmania, Australia.


Drosera glanduligera, the pimpernel sundew,[1] is a rosetted annual species in the carnivorous plant genus Drosera that is endemic to Australia. It is tall and grows in most soil conditions. It produces orange flowers from August to November. It was originally described in 1844 by Johann Georg Christian Lehmann.[1] It is the sole species in the subgenus Coelophylla, which Jan Schlauer elevated from section rank in 1996; it was originally described by Jules Émile Planchon in 1848.[2]
