Shaw Nature Reserve Part 9

Filed under: Other Wildlife — Butterflygirl @ 9:25 am

On the way back from the wetland area when we were walking through the prairie part again we see the weirdest orange stringy stuff growing around the plants in different patches. Anyone know what this stuff is? It doesn’t look like its doing the plants any good. You’ll probably have to click on the pictures to be able to see enough detail of it.

    The orange stringy thing is a parasite plant -you are right it isn’t doing the other plants any good. I can’t remember the name of it but farmers hate it.

    I think it is a parasitic plant called dodder and the scientific name is Cuscuta pentagona. This plant does not prepare its own food and depends on the food of its host.
