    Wishing mistletoes
    Grew on some pussy willows
    Kissing meow toes?

    While I’m very familiar with mistletoe in oaks, last week I came across mistletoe growing on incense cedar limbs. Is it the same genera?

    Now that I have highspeed internet access, this was one of the first sites I went to; plus i downloaded the Widget for my Mac Dashboard, and have been telling fellow writers and plantlovers about the whole site. Thank you for doing this for those of us who adore plants of all sorts…
    cheers, jodi

    Thanks Dale. Your haiku reminded me of my mother brushing pussy willows against my face when I was very young. Thanks for reviving the memory.
    Penny, I’m not sure – where in the world are you roughly located?
    Thanks, Jodi!

    The Jepson Manual: Higher Plants of California lists Calocedrus decurrens (incense cedar) as a host of the leafy mistletoe Phoradendron libocedri.

    in Northern California, in the foothills of the Sierras. It looked slightly different from oak mistletoe, but it was obviously mistletoe. If I come across it again, I’ll keep a sample to photograph for you as best I can.
