Round Leaf Sundew (Drosera rotundifolia)
Sundew thrives on wet ground poor of nutrients. The leaves are covered with glandular leaf hairs which secrete sticky enzymes. Insects stick to the leaves and are digested by the plant. Sundew thus compensates for the low level of nutrients it can get from the ground.
