  1. Wonderful find Ernst! I have been fascinated of late with mistletoe in Australia and have recently discovered that the oldest lineage is in Australia! I have been searching for Atkinsonia ligusrina that is only found in the Blue Mountains however can’t find any flowering at the moment! So fascinating! Thanks for sharing this! Annie!
