Drosera x hybrida is a naturally occurring sterile hybrid D. filiformis x intermedia resembling a dwarf D. filiformis. The medium length thread-shaped leaves are green with bright red tentacles and have a slight bulge in the middle. It emerges early in the Spring and lasts throughout the Summer and Fall. It forms a small winter hibernacula (resting bud), which is best pushed down to the surface in early Spring for best growth. The flowers are white with a tint of pink on short scapes with multiple blossoms. It flowers from June to July, but its seeds are non-viable. It is native to restricted regions of the bogs of New Jersery where D. filiformis and D. intermedia occur. It is a curious addition to your collection or bog garden. It is suitable for terrariums. It was first identified in a New Jersey bog. In it's dormant season, it will be shipped as a dormant hibernaculum. This selection comes from leaf cuttings and is genetically identical to the parent.

Drosera hybrida was one of the first documented cases of a plat hybrid I nature in 1898.
