Lying in wait hidden among the innocent leaves of green grasses in this Florida grassland are the dew-covered leaves of the threadleaf sundews,
D. filiformis.
The thread-like leaf of this sundew grows to a height of 30cm or more. There are two recognized varieties of this species:
D. filiformis
v. filiformis, with red-tinted glands (red form), and D. filiformis v. tracyi, which contains no red pigmentation (green form).
