Drosera lowriei is a rosetted tuberous species associated with the granite outcrops of the Wheatbelt Region in Western Australia. The species has distinctive overlapping obovate leaves which get smaller as they reach the center of the rosette. The plants are olive green to red in colouration. The species flowers after the first flush of leaves with each individual bloom borne singly on a prostrate peduncle. The species grows in mossy loam, most often on the drainage fields of the large granite outcrops that dominate the Wheatbelt. Isolated populations occur in other locations, such as by a few rivers in the Fitzgerald River National Park.
