Dionaea 'Akai Ryu' (R.Gagliardo)
Comments: Also 'Red Dragon'. Registered 10. 11. 1998 (JS) Created by Ron Gagliardo of the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Growth habit and flower morphology are typical. The leaf petiole, blade and trap exhibit dark maroon to burgundy coloration. Any green coloration has only been noted around the center of the plant in mid-winter. The entire trap, interior and exterior, exhibits dark burgundy coloration throughout the year. Many of the plants in cultivation are not the genuine 'Akai Ryu'.
