Spoon-Leaf Sundew is a variable perennial plant that produces small rosettes of numerous spoon-shaped leaves. This species is widely variable, but generally plants are about 4 cm across. Each leaf is attached to the central rosette by a narrow 8 mm long leaf-stalk that is only glandular on the upper half. Individual leaf blades are typically 5 mm long and 4 mm wide. In early summer, plants will produce 8 cm tall erect flowering stems with around six small white or pink flowers on each one-sided raceme-like inflorescence. Each flower can be up to 6 mm across. Spoon-Leaf Sundew is widely distributed in Asia and Australia.
