Is this article about a new species of mistletoe terribly relevant and life-changing? No, probably not. But are we feeling a little warm and fuzzy and slightly less jaded because it’s the holiday season? Yes! And doesn’t it seem like more than a coincidence that the species was confirmed only a few days before Christmas? Well okay, it’s arguable, but we’re leaning towards yes on that one, too. And if mistletoe doesn’t catch your fancy, the article also highlights other beautiful and rare plant discoveries made in 2010.
