Summary

The Cape Sundew (Drosera capensis L) is one of best known and most widely grown of all the sundews. Yet it remains poorly known in the wild. I present a summary of my observations of Drosera capensis in nature, from the study of herbarium specimens and the literature, and cultivated plants to present a current picture of its variation in cultivation and in the wild.

Keywords: Drosera capensis, cultivation, wild, distribution, ecology, South Africa
