Hi Yagoin, I know Great

Hi Yagoin,

I know Great Sundew is in the same area but I dont know the ways to seperate it from oblong.

Are there straightforward means of seperation?

at first flowering its easy -

at first flowering its easy - the main stalks of anglica come out of the centre of the rosette (like in rotundifolia), whilst in intermedia they come out from underneath and up round the sides. If anglica later produces more rosette leaves in the middle ofthe rosette it can cause some confusion. anglica has much longer fruiting stalks than the leaves (up to 3-4 times) whilst intermedia only 1-2. The whole size of your plant is more anglica as judged by the rotundifolia growing beside it. Hope that helps

Yes it does, thanks a lot. I will try to put what youve said into use for future IDs, I will be in that area in the next few days.
