is a perennial carnivorous plant that can be found growing in sandy soils of Barred Creek, Cape Leveque, Coulomb Point, Dampier Peninsula, Deep Creek, Derby, Lake Campion, Lake Region,
Roebuck Plains, and Taylor’s Lagoon of Western Australia to the north and northeast of Broome in the region of Kimberley. D. broomensis is the only petiolaris-complex found so far west in Australia, which explains its need to become so small and hairy while dormant during winter months.
The green linear petioles are arranged in a leafy rosette and grow semi-erect and erect. They’re pubescently covered with white hairs during the wet summer growing months, and densely covered in white hais during the dry winter dormant season. The lamina is suborbicular (nearly circular) and vary in colors of green to orange, sometimes they can even be red. The glandular tentacles are longer at the edge and shorter in the center.
One to four inflorescences emerge from the center and grow to 12″ in height, and produces 50 white to pink flowers of various sizes from February to March. The scape and the lower surface of the sepals are glabrous.
This species was first collected in 1891. It is closely related to Drosera petiolaris and differ from other related species by its glabrous inflorescence.
(Name origin: from the town of Broome, in Western
All of our Drosera petiolaris complex are seed grown.
From here on out, our Petiolaris Complex program will be more focused on producing pure and hybrid seeds. Because of this, we will need to keep as many pure species as possible to ensure greater success. Our goal is to grow and provide these wonderful plants in a more sustainable way by focusing on producing seeds rather than just selling live plants. We will be selling live plants still, the only difference is our stock will not constantly be available much like it was before. This change will also ensure that all plants sold will be of a mature size. Check any plant you are interested in, and if it is not in stock, then select the option to be made available for when it is back in stock. Eventually, every plant will be restocked with an overabundance in a particular species or with established divisions.
We will still be selling LIVE Drosera petiolaris complex through two of our subscription plans. The DIAMOND and BLUE DIAMOND plan. The prices of these plans will not raise for the foreseeable future and is the best way to get not only a live Drosera petiolaris complex plant at a great price but will soon be the only way to obtain seeds as they could possibly become even rarer pretty soon. We will not cancel your subscription no matter how rare the seeds become. Click here to check out our subscription plans.
