What is Drosera binata
Drosera binata (Drosera binata) is native to Australia and is a perennial, aquatic and carnivorous plant in the Moss family Droseraceae. It grows in wetlands and has glandular hairs on the tops of its leaves that emit a sticky substance that traps small insects, dissolves them and digests them as nutrients. From early summer to summer, a dozen or so small white flowers bloom at the tip of the petals. The Japanese name comes from the fact that the tips of the leaves are divided like the sasumata (sashimata) seen in the Edo period (1603-1868). The same genus includes Drosera anglica.
