    To most of us, mistletoe is a bundle of odd green leaves with clear-white berries sold for fun at the holidays. THIS mistletoe, however is AMAZING.
    I traveled to the Yucatan’ in 1980 and was totally flummoxed at what an orange-flowering tree might be. In fact, it was a stout gumbo-limbo (Bursera) festooned with flowering Psittacanthus!
    Great flashback. Thanks to all.

    This is Psittacanthus calyculatus. You can see more photos of this species (and others in the genus) on the Parasitic Plant Connection
