Broomrape

Selection of photos of what I assume are Broomrapes, no leaves. Some with reddish stems, some all yellow. Coastal Normandy. Appreciate help with these

They are all certainly Broomrapes, but I think positive id to species depends on details of floral parts - did you take any close up shots of individual flowers?

Based on the number of leguminous plants in the images, I'm tempted to call them all Common Broomrape, orobanche minor, but with the caveat that most species need close ups and a good handbook with keys to be sure of id.

Broomrapes

Thanks for that. Six types of vetch, Lizard orchids etc at the site and Broomrapes in the hundreds. Hummingbird Hawkmoths in the back garden plus prospect of Swallow Tail butterflies. I'm tempted to move to Normandy!
