SS-AGR-342: Wright's Nutrush: An Invader of Seasonal Wetlands in Florida

Figure 14. The leaves of Wright's nutrush are long, wide, and lance-shaped. Their "W"-like pleats and blunt tips are clearly displayed. The plants pictured are entering the flowering stage at which time their leaves tend to bend toward the tip in a manner that reflects sunlight (photo by Leo Nico, USGS).
