That’s what I’m also trying to figure out. I want to plant some Drosera with my VFTs, but I would require ones that go dormant.

Well, seeing that the plants are old and established enough to flower, it probably means they have been there a while and winter just finished so the flytraps just came out of dormancy. That would mean the sundews are either hardy sub-tropicals or temperates I think. I guess it could be D. brevifolia or maybe spatulata, admirabilis, or aliciae. I am by no means an expert so I very well could be mistaken.

Looks like aliciae, but not sure.

I'm guessing D. spatulata probably, or D. natalensis maybe. (Both are subtropical to tropical.)
But that's only a guess.
Label them as Drosera damnifiknow.
They look to be about an inch in diameter.
They remind me of weedy spats that are always popping up in my pots out of nowhere.

Drosera venusta has leaves that typically grow upwards at about a 22 - 45 degree angle.
These leaves are lying pretty flat.
So I would vote against D. venusta.

Definitely D. aliciae. Many of the summer blooming ZA species can go dormant in the winter, re-emerging from growth points and/or fleshy roots. D. capensis grows as a weed in my Sarracenia pots, dying back every winter and growing again in the spring.

Will natalensis die back to the roots as well?

I've never experienced it with natalensis so am not sure. I've noticed that nata generally has thinner roots than species such as aliciae and capensis.
