BEDSTRAW BROOMRAPE Orobanche caryophyllacea (Orobanchaceae) Height to 30cm. A distinctive plant, as broomrapes go. Its flowers are pinkish white or creamy yellow, clove-scented, and borne in spikes (June-July). As its name suggests, the plant is a parasite of bedstraws and grows in grassland, mainly on dunes but rarely also on downland. It is easiest to locate at Sandwich Bay in Kent.
