A clifftop rarity

It was Andy – self confessed ‘Non-Botanist’ – that put the flag up. He’d found some unusual Broomrape here on the cliff tops. Tony got excited, and after some research made a positive identification. Although it’s the scare Purple Broomrape it is a very rare yellow variant. A rare, bright and beautiful plant.
