Drosseraceae Gallery - the Sundew family

With about 180 species worldwide, the Sundew family is quite a large collection of carnivorous plants, nearly all of which are in the genus Drosera. Three Drosera species are known to occur in Britain.

These thumbnail pictures have links to larger photographs and information about each of the species, their habitat needs and an identification guide.

We have used the scientific names to identify species in this table, but if you prefer to use common names we have also listed all species covered on the First Nature website in alphabetical order of Common Names...

There is also the option to see all species listed in order of Scientific Names or Botanical Families or Dominant Colour.
