Climbing Sundew

The Climbing Sundew uses its sticky leaves, not only for catching insects but also to attach itself to allow it to climb up to a metre high.

Flowering occurs from July through to October.

Can easily be overgrown by more vigorous species. Basically needs the surrounding growth to be under 50 cm high..

Enjoys a mowing every few years in summer when the bulb is dormant.
