Geography - the environment - mistletoe.


Did you know that mistletoe is the only parasitic plant in the world?
They have unbelievably sticky seeds and beautiful flowers. Mistletoe is like this because they spread easily and they have red flowers. The birds are attracted to the flowers. When the birds poo it out  It sticks to the tree.
It all happens in trees branches and it sucks all the water out of the tree.
Druids used it for potions especially for love ones.

I am learning lots about different environments, landscapes the plants and animals in them for Geography

Here is a picture of mistletoe.
