Mistletoe has a mystique, especially at Christmas time. But it in reality, it is a very common plant. It grows as a parasite, living on trees. This clump is growing at the end of a branch. Most of the time it blends in with the foliage on the tree so as to be almost invisible. When I was a young Boy Scout, our troop raised money one year by going into the mountains and cutting mistletoe and selling it before the Holiday Season.
