Page 9a Hemiparasite species

Hemiparasite species

Eyebright (photo) grows on the roots of grass & clover. It is a hemiparasite species. We stock three other such annuals facing extinction, Yellow Rattle, Loosewort and Red Bartsia. They are all annuals adapted to survival in grassland. Manage them carefully.  They are now rare & endangered with extinction as Hay meadows disappear.

The challenge facing DBN is to bring our native flora with us into the new millennium so that they benefit from us and visa versa.
