The Strangest Plant in the World!!
Well, maybe not the strangest plant in the world, but certainly one of the most bizarre. This site includes pictures from our Hydnora and Prosopanche research as well as texts from published work and a bibliography of my papers on the genus.
Be sure to check Tennakoon, K. U., J. F. Bolin, L. J. Musselman, and E. Maas. 2007. Structural attributes of the hypogeous holoparasite Hydnora triceps Drege & Meyer (Hydnoraceae). American Journal of Botany94(9): 1439-1449 with the cover of that issue featuring the award winning image by Jay Bolin.
