This plant is an all red Venus Fly-Trap named after C.Clayton. It regularly grows up to 25cm across, although extremely slowly, and is one of the wonders of the Fly-Trap world. The features which make this cultivar different from other red flytraps (such as Dionaea ‘Red Dragon’ and Dionaea ‘Red Piranha’ are:
- The petioles are almost always long and thin. The other red Fly-Traps have wider petioles, especially during the winter.
- During the winter, this cultivar totally loses its leaves, at least when grown in a Mediterranean climate. The other red FlyTraps retain at least some of their leaves.
- This plant is totally red, except for the teeth on immature traps, which are yellow. Dionaea ‘Red Dragon’ incorporates green as part of its coloration during its growth cycle.
- <The color of this cultivar is a deeper, darker red than the other currently named red flytrap cultivars. It becomes almost black in the summer if exposed to full sunlight.
- The marginal spines on this cultivar are normal, and not sawtooth as in Dionaea ‘Red Piranha’
