Hydnora: the strangest plant in the world?

Abstract:
Hydnora is a poorly known genus of parasitic plants from Africa and southern Arabia. An extreme reduction in morphological features, including the complete lack of leaves, has led to Hydnora's reputation as “the strangest plant in the world.” Although it is among the most basal parasitic angiosperms known to science, little work has been carried out on the genus and it remains virtually unknown in cultivation.
