Green fly traps are from Venus. Red fly traps are from Mars! Dionaea 'Akai Ryu' is a spectacular and vigorous 1997 introduction from the Atlanta Botanical Garden...the result from years of line-breeding by carnivorous plant guru Ron Gagliardo. Dionaea 'Akai Ryu', which means "red dragon," has bright red stems ending in carmine-red traps. This is truly a stunning conversation piece when grown either in a container garden or a bog garden. Royalties from each sale go to the endangered species conservation program at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
