Ironwood with mistletoe

Desert mistletoe the horrifying desert killer parasite
The mistletoe (Phoradendron californicum) found on desert plants such as palo verde and ironwood is a parasite. It draws food and water from its host. The berries are a major winter food source for the phainopepla, a black, crested bird, who in turn spreads the seeds to other trees where a new plant can take root.
