Where to find mistletoe
Find mistletoe in the south and the West Midlands in England.
Look for shrubs of mistletoe in the canopy of trees; it is commonly found in apple, lime and poplar but has also been recorded on blackthorn, hawthorn, rowan and willow. Mistletoe can produce some of its own food via photosynthesis but takes minerals and water from the host tree.
The mistletoe’s leaves are green all year round, but are more visible in the winter once the other trees have lost their leaves. The white berries appear from around October until May.
