Purple Toothwort



We spotted these amazing flowers during a weekend walk around the Newark Park NT garden. We didn't know what they were. A quick bit of research and we found that it is Purple Toothwort.
The leafless flowers of this parasitic plant growing on an old moss covered log as you can see here.
