The Round-leaved Sundew (Drosera rotundifolia), or Common Sundew is a species of plant in the Droseraceae family.

Like all sundews, this species is covered with a sticky dew which is on hair-like prodjections, which attractes in insects which then get stuck, and then the sundew will feed off the nutrients.

This species inhabits boggy heathlands and sphagnum bogs. This species will never be found on lime. This species has small white flowers, which can been seen from June till August.
