Nuytsia floribunda is a native of western Australia where it is known locally as moojar or the Christmas tree. To the best of our knowledge, it is the largest mistletoe known to science.

In fact, some get a helping hand from seemingly unlikely partners. Spend en...


Fossilized Flower Places Angiosperms in the Jurassic
