Drosera intermedia (Temperate) Potted

$ 12.99

This is a beautiful temperate form of Drosera intermedia, native to Eastern Canada, the US, and Europe.  In nature it often grows semi-aquatically around lakes in pure peat moss.  In cultivation, it does best in un-drained bowls of waterlogged peat.  It forms a tight bud to overwinter cold conditions.  Great for the outdoor bog garden and it will reseed.

These have been grown under 30% shade cloth and are lightly colored, best to transition to more full sun to reduce burning.
