Drosera prostratoscaposaOne of the striking features of D. prostratoscaposa is that it flowers very early in the growing season while the leaves are just emerging. Each plant can produce up to 4 flower scapes, each bearing up to 25 flowers. While the flowering proceeds the flower scapes bend down to the substrate level as the name of this species suggests.
The rosettes can reach up to about 8 cm in diameter and the leaves have a red to maroon colour. The rosette size increases during the growth cycle.
The tubers is orange.
The flowering with flowers lasting for several days while the leaves are still very immature and the prostrate nature of the flower stalks at the later stages of the flowering season are unique for this species. In contrast, D. bulbosa only produces single flowered scapes and D. macrophylla flowers while a basal rosette of leaves is formed.
