Drosera coccicaulis

Each leaf unfurls to reveal a flaming halo of strident red crowned with shiny drops of liquid diamond. As our eye penetrates the cardinal cloud it comes to rest on the bold gold evident in the body of the leaf.  Vibrant in form as well as color, the leaves are more thrust into the air than extended. 

Younger siblings push their way by aging lower leaves come against the ground to lay.  They thrust themselves into the day, past their parent's feet of clay.
