Plant Notes:Blunt Leaf False Foxglove is a native herbaceous annual in the Broomrape family (Orobanchaceae). It is native to most of Alabama. Blunt Leaf False Foxglove occurs in Longleaf pine woods, Black Belt prairies, in bogs, in rocky woods, and on roadsides. It is an annual with a tap root. Stems are erect, branched, yellow-green in color, not becoming dark on drying, glabrous or slightly pubescent, stiff, and angled. Leaves are opposite, sessile, narrowly obovate to spatulate in outline, minutely pubescent on the upper surface, and entire. Flowers are produced in terminal racemes. The calyx is reticulate with 5 greatly reduced lobes. The corolla is pink in color, without yellow stripes and with few purple spots or spots lacking. The corolla is 5 lobed. The fruit is a globose capsule. Blunt Leaf False Foxglove is hemiparasitic. Seedlings must establish a connection to the roots of grass plants for continued growth.—A. Diamond
