Drosera spatulata, the spoon-leaved sundew, is a variable, rosette-forming sundew with spoon-shaped leaves. The specific epithet is Latin for "spatula shaped," a reference to the form of the leaves. 

This sundew has a large range and occurs naturally throughout Southeast Asia, in southern China and Japan, Micronesia, New Guinea through to the eastern territories of Australia and Tasmania and New Zealand. Variants are often known by the localities in which they are found.

The plant does not form hibernacula in winter, and is easily grown using the same methods as Drosera capensis. Carnivorous plant growers consider D. spatulata to be a weed because it is very hardy and produces copious amounts of seed when it flowers.

The seed also germinates without much difficulty, causing little plants to pop up in surrounding pots. Many "D. spatulata" distributed in cultivation are mislabeled and are often actually D. tokaiensis.
