Botany picture #87: Orobanche minor

Orobanche minor (Orobanchaceae), Australian Capital Territory, 2010. Another introduced Orobanchaceae, this is species if holoparasitic, meaning that in contrast to the Parentucellia featured recently on this blog it does not even do its own photosynthesis any more but obtains all it needs from other plants.
