Viscum album var. coloratum / Yadorigi ヤドリギ

 
Viscum album var. coloratum is a semiparasitic evergreen woody plant that takes in water and nutrients from a broad-leaf deciduous tree, such as Zelkova_serrata, Fagus crenata, etc. Therefore, it's so easy for V. album var. coloratum to catch even casual observers' eye only if in wintertime. The seed can stay attached to the tree surface and germinate as the mucous layer envelopes it. Bloom time: February-Match.
