Drosera erythrorhiza.   Red Ink Sundew

  Droseraceae

Flat, rosetted tuberous, perennial herb, to 0.12 m high. Fl. white, Apr–Jun. The above-ground parts die back completely. They translocate all their valuable reserves of water and photosynthates into small, more or less spherical underground tubers. They spend the summer months in tuber form, and emerge in the spring to produce their rosettes of leaves and flowers.
