Pink Rock Wort
Family Portulacaceae, Sedopis filsonii is a
delicate brightly pink coloured, prostrate perennial.
Endemic to the southern Northern Territory, within restricted habitat of the
greater MacDonnell Ranges, the Pink Rock Wort whilst not common, can easily be
missed if not for their brightly coloured flowers.
This plant was found in the range above Ormiston Gorge in the Western MacDonnell during the month of
April (after considerable rainfall). The flower appears above the leaves on a
stem about 2-3 cm high.
