Hello doowop 6116,

Alba variety D. capensis (White Leaf) sundews typically grow about 5 inches in size while the Red Leaf D. capensis typically get about an inch larger.

Hello Doowop 6116,

I can only commment from pictures and information I have read about those varieties as I have not grown them. I tend to grow the typicals and the narrow leaf varieties. From Petiolaris's pictures on this forum, it appears that the Alba produces wider leaves than the Red Form capensis.
