Abstract

Drosera × Dork’s Pink Hancock & Lowrie (Figs. 1, 2, 3, & 5) is the first man-made pygmy Drosera hybrid to be acknowledged in the literature (Lowrie 2014). The hybrid is a cross between Drosera lasiantha Lowrie & Carlquist (female parent) (Lowrie & Carlquist p. 100, 1992; Lowrie p. 192, 1998) and Drosera callistos N.G. Marchant & Lowrie (male parent) (Marchant & Lowrie p. 321, 1992; Lowrie p. 30, 1989). This hybrid was produced in the spring of 2000. The hybridization materials and methods are recorded; a description of the hybrid is presented; the parent plants as well as the hybrid are photographically illustrated; and the etymology for “Dork’s Pink” is explained.
