Insectivorous plant native to acidic bogs in the boreal forest. All leaves basal, bearing glandular hairs which exude a sticky drop to trap insects. Leaves linear, the longest leaf we could find measured 5.5 cm long, 2 mm wide. Small white flowers in racemes, flowers measured to 1 cm diameter, scapes measured to 10 cm tall. Budd's Flora lists leaves of this species can reach a length of 6 cm.
I have seen these growing in two locations in Saskatchewan. Both times were in pitcher plant bogs, growing in very wet conditions on edges of small muddy pools.
Very rare, listed as an S1 by the Saskatchewan Conservation Data Centre.
Photos taken June 24, and July 13th, very wet bog, boreal forest, 400 km north east of our home in Regina, SK.
