19 Mistletoe

Amyema (various species)

Look up and see if you can spot the drooping clump of mistletoe leaves. People enjoyed the sticky fruits and in some areas the leaves were used for healing.
The Grey Mistletoe (Amyema quandong) is often found on Blackwood trees. It is a parasite which can take over and eventually kill the host tree.
