CARROT BROOMRAPE Orobanche minor ssp. maritima (Height to 50cm) is similar to Common Broomrape but shows subtle differences in the flower structure: the back of the corolla is straight, not curved (Jun-Jul). This species grows on coastal sand and is a parasite of Sea-Holly and Sea Carrot. It also grows, very locally, on the Isle of Wight.
