Drosera rupicolaA species with 3-5 semi-erect stems reaching up to 15 cm in length mostly arising from the centre of a basal rosette of leaves. Three different colorations can be found, even growing side by side: golden-green, reddish or bronze. The leaves are arranged in whorls (3-4 leaves per whorl).
Inflorescences arise from the basal rosette but sometimes also from lower axils of the semi-erect stems. The flowers are white and stay open for several days.
The tuber is orange to red.
