Product Description

Real Mistletoe

Get your Christmas decorations started with Real Mistletoe. This unique item comes with a custom red bow and is ready to use as soon as it arrives. There is no exact measurements and no two pieces are alike as these are real plants harvested from the tops of trees.

Long welcomed into homes during Christmas, mistletoe is a plant that grows in the branches of trees, including apple trees, lime, hawthorns, poplars, chestnuts, oaks, locusts, and firs.

Real Mistletoe is an evergreen that sports dense clusters of whorled, thick, leathery leaves.

Its flowers, which are tiny and yellow, are found on green, pointed stems. The plant grows to about a foot tall. The flowers bloom in early fall or at the very end of winter or the very beginning of spring. Male and female flowers are sometimes found on different plants. Flowers are followed by white, shiny berries that are favorites of birds especially cedar waxwings and bluebirds. Sometimes trees will hold great flocks of these birds as they feast on the mistletoe berries which are covered with a sticky substance that they relish. The seed found in the berries clings to the birds’ beaks and are disbursed when the birds sharpen their beaks against tree bark. That enables another mistletoe plant to grow on the spot. Mistletoe is a member of the Loranthaceae family. The plant is found mostly in tropical and temperate regions.

To help your live Mistletoe last longer, mist it with a light spray of water once per day.

 Why is mistletoe a symbol of Christmas? Some historians claim that the Druids, which were the priestly class of the ancient Celts, cut mistletoe which grew on a sacred oak and gave to people to use as charms. Other European people used mistletoe in their ceremonies. During Christmas, mistletoe is hung in a doorway, and anyone caught standing beneath it must forfeit a kiss.

    LOVED IT

    Dec 20, 2023 Reviewer: Dawn Morel

    Fresh mistletoe arrived quickly and was beautiful. It seems to be lasting pretty long, but I know that it will dry out since it’s all natural (and that’s fine by me!)

    Quite expensive relative to what I actually received. A sprig of mistletoe no bigger than my hand, with no berries.
