Sticky Bartsia

Parentucellia latifolia


A plant about one foot high with slightly angular stem small spiky leaves in whorls at nodes. Flowers were a deep magenta on the outside and creamy white on the inside with five petals which were thick with minute hairs. There was a central hood petal and the four others were splayed out showing stamens with thick anthers. Tubular calyces were ribbed. The plant had apical clusters of flower buds covered with trichomes (hairs) and had a herbaceous feel to it.


Growing wild in open grassland- Cardinia Reservoir Park


A native to Europe, it is now found in many countries. Thanks to my husband Mark for help with identifying this plant. Brilliant job! Order: Lamiales Family: Linderniaceae
