The flower isn't in full bloom yet, but it looks pale, so maybe it's a Pale sundew?

Drosera peltata has hairy sepals.

To get good photos of the sepals of an open flower, take a photo of the back and or side of the flower. You can also show the outside of the sepals with clear photos of a flower bud, probably easier.

Ok thank you. I'll try to take more of the outside of the sepals and bud next time.

You should also take a photo of the basal leaves. There are now two species with hairy sepals - peltata, with reddish basal leaves, and hookeri with green basal leaves.
