The Curious World of Broomrapes Orobanches and their close relatives are holoparasitic plants. The species found in BC are mostly seen as curiosities. Elsewhere in the world, however, they can be crop pests. Perhaps their ecological role is underestimated. Join Matt Fairbarns at the Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature House, 7:30 p.m. to learn more about these unusual plants. Everyone welcome.
