Stamps with Parasitic Plants


It seems that parasitic plants have, upon several ocassions, been chosen as subjects for postage stamps. Several of the stamps shown below were all found on the Herbier Philatélique (Philatelic Herbarium) web site maintained by Pierre Guertin. Visit that site to see stamps with images of many diverse plants!

If you are aware of other parasitic plants on stamps, please forward the information to me (nickrent at plant.siu.edu).
