What a find! These tiny round-leaf sundews, Drosera rotundifolia var. rotundifolia, are carnivorous plants about the size of a quarter and are easily missed right off the path. One of our volunteers and USA student, Emma McWilson, found these during one of her surveys this week after taking a closer look at the white flowers next to the candytuft, Polygala sp., she was looking at. While this is a common species in Longleaf Pine ecosystems, this is a first for the Longleaf Pine Treasure Forest at the Mobile Botanical Gardens! This is one of the reasons why staying on the designated paths is so important- you never know who you might be stepping on! #mbgscene #mbgllf1 #nativeplants #conservation #longleafpine #botanicalgardens #drosera #carnivorousplants @ Mobile Botanical Gardens
