What is Mistletoe?
Mistletoe is a parasitic or semi-parasitic plant that takes root on trees, mostly hardwoods. It looks like a hanging or drooping bush with a yellowish tinge to its evergreen leaves with modified roots that embed themselves into the trunks and branches of the host tree. Once in place the mistletoe forms tubes through which water and nutrients are collected. The mistletoe is slow-growing but persistent parasite.
The north American version of mistletoe is called the dwarf mistletoe and contains many of the same properties as the European version.
It is easy to confuse the two but in reality Holly mistletoe doesn’t exist A Holly bush has many of the same properties as Mistletoe but they are in fact different plants. Both have small red berries and both are used as Christmas decorations. So to keep your kiss real, Kiss under a Mistletoe sprig and keep the Holly for the other decorations.
