Hello Gardeners, I’m Amanda McNulty with Clemson Extension and Making It Grow. Parasitic plants with the common name mistletoe occur almost worldwide and in many cultures were associated with myths and pagan religious rites. The Scottish anthropologist Sir James George Frazer wrote a comparative study of mythology and religion. In his book The Golden Bough which is one of the common names for mistletoe, he wrote extensively about the European mistletoe, Viscum album.
