Orobanche coerulescens / Hamautsubo ハマウツボ

Orobanche coerulescens, an annual herb in sandy soil in coastal areas, grows parasitic on plants in Asteraceae like Artemisia capillaris. The whole is downy, and stems are thick, yellow-brown, erect, and grow to 10-25 cm in height, with some degenerated leaves in a scaly way. Upper portions of the branches set racemose inflorescences with many light purple flowers. Corollas are lip-shaped, about 2cm long; calyxes divide in two, and the lobes cleft in two afresh. Bloom time: May-July.
