Button Wrinklewort - Rutidosis leptorrhynchoides - Card
Australian Native plant
Reproduced from an original watercolour painting by Cheryl Hodges.
Greeting card 10 x 15cm, blank inside with white envelope
Text on reverse of card reads:
The Button Wrinklewort is an endangered species, known from less than 30 sites in the NSW Southern Tablelands and Victoria. It occurs in the Box-Gum Grassy Woodlands of Queanbeyan Nature Reserve.
The name comes from the Greek origin of “Rutidosis” – “rytidos” meaning wrinkle, which refers to the wrinkled bracts that support the heads of flowers. And of course “button” is for the button shaped flowers.
