false foxglove, Agalinis fasciculata

Beach false foxglove is the largest of our Agalinis. These can be two meters tall, with flowers an inch and a half long. It has been described as somewhat weedy, which seems a little strange for a plant that is partly parasitic. It does grow in drier habitats than most Agalinis. Beach false foxglove occurs in AL, AR, DE, FL, GA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MD, MO, MS, NC, NJ, NY, OK, PA, SC, TN, and TX. Taylor Co FL, 10/20/15. Broomrape family, Orobanchaceae.
