Discovered and named by Phil Golding, Creeping Death does not grow the wide petioled spring leaves that many flytraps do. Instead, it just starts the season with the long leaves in spring.
Phil obtained the original plant from Cook's Carnivorous Plants years ago after helping Dean Cook clean out a greenhouse after a bad freeze. Creeping Death was among the only survivors. After a few years of growing the plant, he noticed the unique traits and set aside and named the plant.
Like the WIP Slim Snapper, WIP Long Snapper and Spider, Creeping Death is a long-leafed Venus Flytrap clone.
