This is a root parasite of rapeseed/mustard crop, known as Broomrape, the flowers are beautiful..
Your comments will help me finalize the id taken by me as Phelipanche aegyptiaca...
a basic question...
are root parasites fungal origin or are they true plants with true seeds?
Thanks ... for liking the pics..
..., this is a true seed plant, just deriving its nutrients from mustard roots, as it is non-green..
