River Waihaha Track, Pureora National Forest, North Island, New Zealand
We came across a patch of sundew plants in a rather unexpected place along the trail, just a the base of a rather wet vertical slope on one side of the path.
|Sundews possibly Drosera binata|| || || |
To my inexpert eye these plants look very similar to the ones that we found in Fiordland NP, see
Here they did seem to have accumulated a lot of dew or rain!. Here is a close-up of a big drop.

Close by there was another mat of sundew plants that seemed to be more branched than the ones shown above. have a look and if you don't agree with me, please let me know.
|Sundew plants rather branched |
Here is a close-up of the way it branched.
Please, let me know if they were all the same species, that is, Drosera binata
This is my fifth and last blog post about sundews. When I started this blog I knew nothing about Drosera
species and had never heard about triggerplants and bladderworts! All carnivorous plants. Lots of fascinating learning. Please correct me if I have made any mistakes!
