Pinkish flowers bloom in May in the southern locality of this species in the Florida panhandle. A tall scape bearing many flower buds
protrudes above the glandular leaves. A flower typically opens for only a few hours in the morning.  All the flowers face eastward toward
the morning sun.  

A forest of glandular leaves of the threadleaf sundews (green-form) covering the Florida panhandle savanna. In early May, at 10:00am,
pink flowers started to bloom.  By noon they will be gone.  Tomorrow morning a next flower on the scape will flower.
