Drosera intermedia is the only species of the genus with a distinct stem, scattered cauline leaves, and an arching scape. Its habit of growing in the wettest places, often in standing water, is characteristic. The stems are longer in deeper water and may be up to 20 cm in the southern part of its range. The winter hibernaculae form at the tips of the elevated stems; they will fall to the ground and sprout the following spring. The plants may reproduce vegetatively by forming plantlets in place of flower parts. The plantlets can be rooted, and in general this species is easy to grow.
M. L. Fernald (1950) recognized forma corymbosa (de Candolle) Fernald with a corymb instead of a raceme, and forma natans Heuser with floating stems up to 20 cm long.
