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:

  1. The petioles are almost always long and thin. The other red Fly-Traps have wider petioles, especially during the winter.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. <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.
  5. The marginal spines on this cultivar are normal, and not sawtooth as in Dionaea ‘Red Piranha’

    This plant was very healthy when I got it. The longer I grow it, and the longer leaves it grows, the more I fall in love with it. Some of my favourite colours on a fly trap.
