Spotted more growing in a roadway center divider on California Buckwheat. I am notifying the Conservancy of this occurrence in hope of helping relocate it. I’ve watched some great Youtube vids about this strange plant. Wish I had a more suitable growing space for it myself.
Here are some pics of dodder I took from last year at a hiking trail near my house. The closeup ones were just out of reach. Otherwise I would have wanted to try to grow some myself. The orange color is quite distinctive once you've seen it.
@Tanukimo, I wish you luck finding some you can reach. I saw more Dodder, AKA Vampire Plant, along a trail side; A patch sapping the life out of poison oak. Imagine the fun we could have creating such fascinating vampire gardens around our neighborhoods. As a test grow experiment I wreathed a collected Dodder length around a sweet potato stem. Looks hopeful so far.
