Cuscuta campestris (Field dodder)

Cuscuta campestris
  • Cuscuta campestris is a holoparasitic plant which belongs to the family Convolvulaceae (Solanales). It is native to North America but has been introduced to many other places around the world. In contrast to most other parasitic plants, Cuscuta species have a remarkably broad host range and many of them are devastating agronomic weeds.
