Author's notes

Female has a prominent 3-lobed purple ovary

1 comment

   16 Aug 2020
Wurmbea can alter its sex depending on resources: male 6 stamens, female 3-lobed purple ovary or hermaphrodite (both). At the moment there are vast numbers of male flowers, a few clumps of females and the occasional hermaphrodite on Mt Ainslie.
