Plant of the Day

Sunday 8 October 2017

At the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, London, the carnivorous plant Drosophyllum lusitanicum (Portuguese sundew, dewy pine, slobbering pine) was catching the sunlight as well as insects. This species is native to areas of Portugal, Spain, and Morocco and prefers a Mediterranean climate with mild wet winters and hot dry summers.
