Author's notes

Extremely sturdy root 25cm in diameter. This is the 1st time this plant has been found in this area of HGW. Broomrape occurs intermittently in other areas. However this is on a purchased Chrysocephalum apiculatum cultivar (2019) and asks the question about the possible transfer in soil in pots. We know that oxalis, etc is common on purchased tubestock.
