D. multifida -$12
One of the fork-leaf complex, this species can reach more than 2 feet tall, with foot wide leaves bearing up to 16+ branches colored bright yellow and red. Tall stalks bear self-sterile white flowers. Grown outdoors, fully acclimated to full sun and low humidity; does well as a warm-temperate or subtropical plant
D. 'Marston Dragon' -$8
A cultivar cross between D. dichotoma x multifida, capable of reaching up to 2 feet tall with foot wide leaves. Branches are fewer but thicker than the multi-fork leaf sundew, retaining a more golden background color with red tentacles. Grown outdoors, fully acclimated to full sun and low humidity; does well as a warm temperate or subtropical plant.
D. 'Alexandrite Aster' -$16
A Carlton Carnivores original cultivar, resulting from a cross of D. aliciae x sp. Lantau Island. Rosettes up to 3 inches across are bright green, occasionally blushing red, with deep scarlet tentacles, and extremely long stalks bearing large, bright pink flowers are produced regularly.
D. spatulata "Royal Natl. Pk. Sydney" x tokaiensis -$4
One of several similar crosses sold by Carlton Carnivores, producing compact rosettes of spoon-shaped leaves and semi-fertile stalks of pink flowers. Readily clumps
D. filiformis "FL All Red" x sp. Lantau Island -$10
A Carlton Carnivores original cross, this readily dividing hybrid produces rosettes up to 2 inches across, with elongate strap to paddle shaped leaves colored olive green or flushed red.
D. tokaiensis x intermedia "Easton, MA" -$8
A compact 2 inch plant with rosettes of narrow paddle-shaped flat leaves in shades of bright green with red tentacles. Delicate stalks bear light pink flowers.
D. capensis 'Albino' x sp. Lantau Island' -$10
Rosettes up to 3 inches across bear elongate paddle leaves typically colored bright yellow-green with red tentacles, though leaves may flush with shades of light crimson. Long stalks bear large, pale pink flowers
D. tokaiensis x spatulata 'Tamlin' -$4
'Tamlin' lends its large size and semi-erect growth to this otherwise flat rosetted cross, making for bright green to red rosettes up to 3 inches in diameter that can produce flower stalks in excess of 2 feet long.
D. spatulata 'Tamlin' x tokaiensis -$4
Similar in size but with slightly more erect and narrow leaves than the reverse cross, though flower stalks reach equal proportions.
D. tokaiensis x spatulata "Royal Natl. Pk. Sydney" -$4
A compact rosette with heavily clumping tendencies and bright pink flowers
D. brevifolia x tokaiensis $8
Similar in design to a miniaturized D. tokaiensis but with broader lamina, averaging only an inch across with tall, delicate flower stalks covered in glands and bearing light pink blooms.
D. brevifolia x sp. Lantau Island -$9
D. brevifolia has a tendency to produce hybrids with an appearance like a miniaturized version of the other parent, and this is no exception. Compact rosettes of semi-erect paddle leaves are colored olive green to scarlet with prominent red tentacles, and glandular stalks bear pale pink blooms.
D. oblanceolata "Sunset Peak" x (ultramafica x spatulata?) -$10
The paternal parent of this cross is a possible pure D. spatulata form from Siegfried Hartmeyer, but this hybrid is beautiful no matter the parentage. Narrow semi-erect paddle leaves can blush red in strong light and the delicate stalks produce flowers so pale pink they open nearly pure white.
D. aliciae x nidiformis -$10
Semi-erect and elongate wedge-shaped leaves are olive green and red flushed, reaching at least 2 inches across but may become even larger with time.
D. capillaris 'Emerald's Envy' -$12
A naturally originating cultivar with semi-erect rosettes up to an inch and ha half across, entirely lime green with tentacles that flush from pink to scarlet depending on light intensity. Flowers are pure white.
D. spatulata "white flower" -$4
A prolific form of spoon-leaf sundew great for beginners. 2 inch semi-erect rosettes of elongate paddle leaves are olive green flushing with crimson in strong light, and regularly produce stalks of self=pollinating white flowers.
D. spatulata "white flower" x 'Tamlin' -$5
This cross retains the semi-erect nature of both parents but can gain size up to 3 inches across and tends to flush deeper red even in moderately bright light. White flowers are fully self-fertile
D. 'Childhood Wishes' -$16
A Carlton Carnivores original cultivar, a cross of D. affinis "Uningi Pans, Zambia" x spatulata "white flower." Stem-forming rosettes produce spreading elongate leaves with narrow petioles and folded lamina that stick out in all directions, reminiscent of the fronds of a palm tree or the seedheads of dandelions. Bright green with crimson tentacles to fully scarlet in the lamina, and the wiry flower stalks bear delicate, bright pink blooms.
D. sp. Lantau Island x capensis "typical" -$9
3 inch semi-erect rosettes of elongate strap-paddle leaves range from solid olive to red-tinted with scarlet tentacles and long wiry stalks of large, bright pink flowers. A common divider, colonies of plants form readily.
D. 'Anemone' -$12
A Carlton Carnivores original cultivar with rosettes up to 3 inches across. This hybrid of D. sp. Lantau Island x capensis 'Albino' bears semi-erect strap-paddle leaves that spread out in all directions, colored emerald green (rarely ever blushing with red) and bejeweled in scarlet tentacles. The tall stalks bear large, pale pink flowers.
D. spatulata "white flower" x tokaiensis -$4
Readily dividing and clumping with rosettes up to 2 inches across, bright green to red-flushed with scarlet tentacles and stalks of hot pink flowers.
D. anglica "Alakai Swamp, HI" x oblanceolata "Sunset Peak" -$12
Curving erect, elongate paddle leaves produce spreading rosettes up to 3 inches across, readily coloring solid yellow to crimson with red tentacles. The delicate flower stalks bear large blooms with the palest tint of pink.
D. oblanceolata "Sunset Peak" x anglica "Alakai Swamp, HI" -$12
3 inch erect rosettes of elongate paddle leaves, tending to be slightly smaller than the reverse cross but no less stunning in singular growth or colonies of plants. Flowers are a similarly barely tinted pink coloration.
D. anglica "Alakai Swamp, HI" x spatulata ('Tamlin' x "Royal Natl. Pk. Sydney") -$8
This complex Carlton Carnivores original hybrid bears semi-erect paddle-shaped leaves in rosettes up to 2 inches in diameter, readily flushing solid red throughout. 2 distinct forms appear in this cross, a bright white-flowered form and hot pink flowered.
D. spatulata "Royal Natl. Pk. Sydney" -$6
Though supposedly capable of reaching 2 inches across, in my experience this form tends to produce compact rosettes of elongate wedge leaves ranging from green to solid red depending on light and bearing delicate stalks of dark pink flowers.
D. spatulata "Royal Natl. Pk. Sydney" x anglica "Oregon" -$8
An almost miniaturized remake of D. x nagamotoi with rosettes averaging 1-1.5 inches across bearing narrow-petioled, paddle leaves that redily flush brick red in good lighting. Delicate stalks bear bright pink blooms.
D. sp. Lantau Island x (ultramafica x spatulata?) -$10
This beautiful cross produces 2 inch rosettes of leaves held just off the soil surface, paddle-shaped and colored in shades of red over olive with crimson tentacles. The flower stalk produce large, pale pink blooms.
D. intermedia "Carolina Giant" -$12
This form produces sessile rosettes averaging 2 inches across but can reach more than 4 inches in diameter, the narrow paddle leaves growing erect and spreading in all directions. Throughout summer stalks of bright white, self-pollinating flowers may be regularly produced, and in winter this form will go dormant.
D. spatulata "white flower" x sp. Lantau Island -$5
Plants can grow up to 2 inches in diameter, with thick spoon shaped leaves that start out growth semi-erect before lying down in a long-lasting rosette, colored deep olive green to red tinted and bearing scarlet tentacles. Flowers are large and pale pink with ovular petals. Current plants are young, approx. 1" across.
D. sp. Lantau Island x anglica "Alakai Swamp, HI" -$8
The classic Lantau appearance (thick petioles and spoon leaves) but stretched like taffy on mature plants; young plants can be reminiscent of D. capillaris. Can reach nearly 3 inches in diameter, leaves held semi-erect through most of their life with elongate oar-shaped lamina on long, thick petioles and colored primarily green with red tentacles, but can flush with red in the leaves under strong lighting. Pale pink, large flowers. Plants are currently still young, approximately 1-1.5" across.
D. spatulata 'Tamlin' x sp. Lantau Island -$6
Plants up to 2.5" across at maturity possess semi-erect, elongate spoon-shaped leaves that range from bright green with scarlet tentacles to solid wine red under strong lighting. Large, sterile pale pink flowers are often produced on long stalks.
D. burmannii "red tentacles" -$7
Arising from a stowaway in an outdoor pot, this burmannii form stays bright green even in full sun, but contrasted by brilliant scarlet tentacles. It has relatively squat leaves compared to some other forms, and to add to the mystery plants may not always produce their white petals though well-fed plants readily set seeds.
D. capensis "typical" x sp. Lantau Island" -$9
The reverse to a similar cross of mine, with rosettes up to 3" across with narrow strap-shaped leaves in colors of bright green to orange or light red under strong light. Large flowers are occasionally produced, bright pink and sterile.
D. spatulata "Gold Coast, Queensland Au" -$9
An elegant spatulata form that develops relatively flat rosettes of very elongate, narrowly strap-shaped leaves up to 2" in diameter. Color is generally green with a heavy overtone of red and vivid scarlet crimson tentacles. Flowers are white, and fully self-fertile.
D. madagascariensis x spatulata 'Tamlin' -$15
What could be called a "sister hybrid" to the cultivar 'Childhood Wishes,' this cross develops a similar stemmed growth form and splayed "palm tree" leaf pattern, but tends to be slightly shorter in overall profile and with more spacing between the individual leaves,with a rosette up to 3" or so across and each leaf narrowly wedge-shaped with a folded lamina and colored in shades of bright yellow-green to solid red with crimson tentacles. Wiry stalks occasionally form, bearing delicate, sterile pink flowers.
D. oblanceolata "Sunset Peak" -$12
Native to the Hong Kong region, this relative of D. spatulata is often a chameleon in growth pattern, developing small, flat rosettes up to 1.5" across at times (most commonly seen after flowering or other stresses), though most spectacular in its upright, 2" tall and 4" wide spreading rosette form. Elongate paddle shaped leaves with long, narrow petioles and tapered teardrop shaped lamina rise upward before spreading out with age, colored under good lighting in shades of bright to deep red with bloody crimson tentacles. Wiry stalks bearing large, extremely pale pink flowers composed of circular petals are often produced.
D. spatulata "Beenak, Victoria" x neocaledonica -$16
D. neocaledonica is an uncommon and sometimes fussy species to grow; D. spatulata on the other hand is one of the easiest. This hybrid combines the best of both: easy growth and heavy production of leaves from the "Beenak" form of spatulata (which also contributes a lovely bright pink color to the flowers, and very long stalks full of them), and the slender, semi-erect green petioles and bright crimson-scarlet tentacles paired with spiky hairs on the leaf backsides from neocaledonica. Growing to around 1.5-2" across, it is smaller than the paternal species on average, but only just, and does very well singularly or as a colony plant.
D. spatulata ("white flower" x 'Tamlin') x anglica "Alakai Swamp, HI" -$6
One of several D. x nagamotoi type crosses made in-house, this plant develops large rosettes up to 3" across (averaging 2") with semi-erect, elongate paddle-shaped leaves that color readily in shades of orange to deep crimson throughout in strong lighting. Wiry stalks bear small, delicate sterile white blooms regularly.
D. "Tom Turpin" -$10
Sold to me as a prospective future cultivar under this title, "Tom Turpin" is a rigorous and large hybrid of D. nidiformis x natalensis (aka. D. x snyderi). Plants can reach nearly 3" in diameter, with semi-erect paddle-shaped leaves bearing flat, hairy and slightly tapering petioles and an elongate semi-triangular lamina. Coloration is typically green to yellow, sometimes tinged red, with crimson tentacles. Occasionally tall, wiry stalks bearing small, fertile pink flowers are produced.
D. neocaledonica x oblanceolata "Sunset Peak" -$18
Two sought-after species crossed together to create a South-Asian hybrid with a truly unique appearance. Bearing the nearly erect leaves of D. oblanceolata with the hairy petioles and stocky stature of D. neocaledonica, this cross grows up to 2" in diameter and just over an inch tall, with elongate, very slender paddle-shaped leaves bearing petioles and lamina of nearly equal length covered in bristly hairs and colored olive green with crimson tentacles. Rarely, wiry stalks will bear large, very pale pink-peach (almost white) sterile flowers.
D. anglica "Germany" -$14
A temperate form of the English or Great Sundew that lives up to the latter name; every year after exiting dormancy they tend to put out a few leaves that can reach well over 3" tall, sometimes over 4" tall, elongate and shaped like a paddle that was stretched like taffy. Color remains bright green with scarlet tentacles under even strong light, though in full sun might possibly blush red. This is a form that requires a winter dormant period.
D. natalensis x tokaiensis -$6
Some might call me crazy for creating such a cross, but it is a fascinating hybrid. This Carlton Carnivores original cross has rosettes that look very close to D. tokaiensis, but stalks and flowers reminiscent more of natalensis. Rosettes grow to around 1.5" in diameter, with prostrate spoon-shaped leaves composed of semi-pubescent parallel petioles and semi-teardrop shaped lamina. Under strong light they readily color from rich olive green and red tinted to solid crimson with scarlet tentacles. Inflorescences are slender, slightly glandular, and bear small well-spaced blooms with narrow ovular, bright pink petals. As a sterile cross, it will also only spread via cuttings or natural division.
