Byblis liniflora, or commonly known as the Rainbow Plant, is a carnivorous ground cover native to northern Australia and New Guinea. Generally low-growing, it usually reaches only up to 2ft in height, and often forms a dense mat. It produces beautiful pink flowers that are accompanied by striking ornamental foliage that come in various shades of intense greens and reds.

In order to encourage healthy growth, the Rainbow Plant needs to be planted in full sun, and the soil should be kept moist. In USDA growing zones 9-11, it can easily be grown outdoors, but those living in colder climates should grow it in pot and move indoors during winter.
