Round-leaved sundew (Drosera rotundifolia)

Round-leaved sundew (Drosera rotundifolia) is often found in fens where the soil is nutrient poor. A close look at the leaves of this carnivorous plant reveals red glandular hairs which secrete a sticky exudate capable of trapping unsuspecting prey to supplement its diet.
