NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS:
In 2017, we printed a three-volume work titled Drosera of the World, which documented, for the very first time, all species of Drosera known across the globe. All copies of Drosera of the World sold out within 3 months.
Over the last year, the Redfern Team has received hundreds of requests for us to reprint Drosera of the World.
In response, we will reprint a further 250 copies of each volume. The reprint copies, which will be identical to those of the original run, will be the very last copies of this work released.
All reprint copies are signed by Stewart McPherson.
Shipping is at cost price (each volume weighs approx 3 kg). When these copies are sold, no further copies will be printed. This work will be sent to print in late 2019 for distribution during early 2020!
We welcome you to pre-order copies now in order to avoid disappointment.
The Redfern Team hopes that Drosera enthusiasts and academics alike will enjoy these Drosera of the World books!

Drosera are amongst the most recognised carnivorous plants worldwide for their distinctive, dew-covered insect-trapping leaves, with flowers that range from simple and diminutive to some of the most spectacular of all carnivorous plants. The genus is widespread, occurring across Eurasia, Africa, North America, South America and Oceania. These remarkable plants inhabit a broad range of ecological niches, from the wet bogs of the boreal north to sub-Antarctic alpine meadows and even seasonally-wet desert landscapes. While the highest levels of diversity worldwide are found on the Australian mainland, which is home to over 150 species, the species of Africa and South America are the least known species of all. The first species of Drosera were described more than 500 years ago, but new species continue to be discovered even today. These generously illustrated volumes document all Drosera species recognised to date, featuring in-depth descriptions, background information and over 1900 photographs, as well as an exhaustive index of all Drosera names and synonyms.
