Branched broomrape in flower.

Two introduced species of broomrape (Orobanche species) are found in Australia: branched broomrape (O. Ramosa) and clover broomrape (O. Minor). Clover broomrape has not been recorded as causing serious problems to date. Early action and good planning by property owners, backed up by on-going management, will help reduce the impact of broomrape.
