Greater dodder

Previous Index Next

This picture shows the Greater dodder (Cuscuta europaea) climbing on the stem of a stinging nettle. I took the picture on the bank of the river Rhine near Bonn-Beuel.

The arrangement of the flowers in little capitula is an important caracteristic of the different cuscuta species.
