Originally published: 2003
Dwarf mistletoes are parasitic flowering plants that grow within host plants for about two years before producing characteristic yellow to orange or green to brown leafless aerial shoots on the outside of infected host tissue. They occur only on conifers in the pine family in Arizona and are usually host specific. This article gives information about the disease cycle, the symptoms and prevention and control methods for dwarf mistletoes.
