A pretty cultivar with sawtooth-like marginal cilia and irregular red blotches and streaks on both the inner and outer sides of the traps. Unlike many other Dionaea variants, ‘Scarlatine’ is still very nice to look at when the traps are closed for digestion, which is the case more often than not due to the large population of flies here.
