- Hello! I'm from Malaysia. I would be very happy if you can identify for me what flower is this, because I have searched on Google or any applications like NatureID or PictureThis but still can't find the answer. Thankyou in advance :) Anyway, the habitat is in a garden.
- Dear rjahajar, good afternoon. I'm sorry I can't help you with your question. Go Botany is a website dedicated to wild plants of northeastern North America. While we are happy to entertain any plant related questions, some are outside our region of expertise. I apologize again and hope you can find an answer to your question. (Monday, 15 February 2021)
- Cuscuta gronovii? Ferrisburgh, VT August 23, 2014, Thanks.
- joshl, again, this looks consistent with Cuscuta gronovii, but I can't see some of the micromorphological details that are needed for me to confirm this. Cuscuta gronovii is the most common species in New England. Most populations with a 5-merous perianth are this species. Best wishes. (Monday, 15 February 2021)
- Cuscuta gronovii? Salisbury, VT August 2020
- joshl, good morning again. Similar answer to the other Cuscuta gronovii image you took. This picture is consistent with that species. If you are able to get close up images of the flowers (such as a side view so that sepals are visible), that would be helpful. Best wishes. (Friday, 5 February 2021)
