Dodder

Cuscuta sp.

Description:

A parasitic plant in flower. You can see in photo 2 you can see the haustoria that it uses to steal nutrients from the host plant. Sometimes you can see large mats of orange strings that almost look like silly string covering plants, and that is actually dodder. I often see them in roadside ditches.

Habitat:

On some weedy plants near the water at Hunter Springs Park
