COSEWIC assessment and status report on the rough agalinis Agalinis aspera in Canada
Rough agalinis (Agalinis aspera) is a dicotyledonous (having two embryonic leaves) flowering plant that is currently considered a member of the broomrape family (Orobanchaceae). It is a slender annual herb with narrow linear roughened leaves that are opposite to sub-opposite. Manitoba plants grow up to 35 cm tall and exhibit very little branching. Flowers are borne in a short raceme on stalks that are slender but nearly erect. Only one or two of the showy pink flowers are seen at a time because they only last for a day. The fruit is a dark brown oval-shaped capsule containing numerous tiny diamond-shaped seeds.
