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, that is, 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 mucous layer envelopes it.
