Drosera longifolia
(Map updated: March 2008)

The great sundew is similar to the other sundews, and found growing on wet acid bogs. It differs from the common sundew (D. rotundifolia) in the long (not round) leaves and from the oblong-leaved sundew (D. intermedia) in having the flower-shoot arising from the centre of the leaf rosette instead of arising from the side of the rosette.

This plant is also sometimes called Drosera anglica.

All names: Drosera longifolia L.; Drosera anglica Huds.
