Drosera intricata Species Profile

Drosera intricata Species Profile

Drosera intricata is an erect tuberous species endemic to coastal WA. The species has an erect stem that is glabrous, with slightly crescent-shaped laminae flattened towards the top. The flowers are yellow and the sepals are hairy. I observed them growing in the Perth Hills off the Brookton Highway, where they grew in wet seepages in clearings at the edge of Jarrah forest. The plants here were thin stemmed and orange in colouration.

Drosera intricata is distinguished from other long, yellow-flowered sundews by a combination of a glabrous stem and hairy sepals.

Drosera neesii in the Perth Hills. Note the bi-lobed lamina, which has a crescentic shape.
A single specimen of Drosera neesii in the Perth Hills. Plants are self supporting. The local form had a thin central stem, which I understand to be dissimilar from plants elsewhere.
In the Perth Hills, the species grows in moist clearings at the edge of Jarrah Forest.
