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. -Currently in dormant state
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. -Currently in dormant state
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. '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" 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 '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. 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.
Pygmy Drosera Gemmae -$5
Limited availability: winter gemmae season for pygmy sundews is in effect. Current species available:
D. roseana: small plants with semi-erect bushy rosettes of leaves with bright green petioles and pink lamina with red tentacles; flowers are white.
D. citrina: flat rosettes of very narrow paddle-shaped leaves colored bright green with peach or light red tentacles; flowers are white and lemon yellow.
D. pygmaea "green": tiny semi-flat rosettes no more than 0.5" in diameter, entirely bright green with white to barely peach tentacles; flowers are white.
Packets contain 20+ gemmae.
D. capensis 'Albino' -$6
Often erroneously referred to as D. capensis var. alba, this cultivar is the clasic white-flowered form of the cape sundew, capable of growing to a foot across (more often 4-8 inches diameter) with a stem-forming rosette of semi-erect strap-shaped leaves. Even in the brightest sun plants will stay green, though the tentacles can take on a bright pink hue. Large white flowers are self-pollinating, and can set copious seeds.
D. capensis "Wide Leaf" -$12
A variety of cape sundew that develops rosettes of similar size (4-8 inches, can reach to 12) to others, and a decent stem-former, but has leaves that are thicker-set than most other variants. Most notable on plants grown in slightly dimmer lighting, but healthiest and most robust specimens will be had in strong light. Bright green with crimson tentacles, and large pink flowers are self-fertile.
D. capensis "typical" x 'Albino' -$6
A robust and rapid-growing cross between the standard green and red cape sundew and the pink and white cultivar 'Albino'; plants average around 6 inches across with erect to semi-erect strap-shaped leaves, colored a rich green with scarlet tentacles. Flowers are pink, and they are self-pollinating; offspring may be typical capes or produce the 'Albino' cultivar.
D. aliciae -$14
This classic South African species develops long, thick roots and flat rosettes up to nearly 3" in diameter, with overlapping wedge-shaped and flat-tipped leaves that can form dense and clumping columns with age. Strong lighting encourages a bright green hue with crimson tentacles, to often heavily red blushed or entirely light crimson throughout the plant. Flower stalks are covered in tiny red glands, and bear numerous self-pollinating blooms that can be over an inch across with broad, bright pink petals.
D. filiformis "FL All Red" x sp. Lantau Island -$14
Yes, this is in fact a filiformis cross. A homemade hybrid, plants average around 1.5" in diameter but can reach to nearly 3" in some cases, with stemless semi-erect rosettes of elongate "baseball bat" shaped leaves; short but distinct petioles and tapering wedge-shaped lamina show traits between the two parents. Color in proper lighting is typically a rich crimson throughout. Short, wiry stalks are occasionally produced, bearing moderately large, light pink flowers with rounded petals. Does best in a sandy wet soil and warm conditions.
D. capensis 'Albino' x sp. Lantau Island -$10
A Carlton Carnivores original cross, this hybrid develops semi-erect rosettes of elongate paddle shaped leaves that can exceed 3 inches in diameter, commonly bright green with red tinges and scarlet tentacles but strong lighting can flush the plants entirely crimson. Flower stalks can be massively lengthy, with numerous large, light pink sterile blooms.
D. brevifolia x tokaiensis -$8
This diminutive hybrid produces rosettes that rarely reach more than 1-1.5 inches in diameter with short paddle shaped leaves that blush bright crimson in good light. Tall wiry flower stalks are produced regularly, and are covered in tiny glands much like in D. brevifolia; flowers are bright pink, and sterile. Commonly dividing, this hybrid will often rapidly form clumps and colonies.
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 ("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. 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. 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.
