The morphology of the plant and flowers are unique to this species. The leaf petiole, the blade and the trap show a dark brown color that tends towards burgundy. A small green wreath was noted around the center of the plant in mid-winter. The entire trap, inside and out, has a dark burgundy color throughout the year.

Grown under laboratory conditions, where nutrient levels can be relatively high, the plants always show partial burgundy coloration in the traps and leaf blades.
