The opposite to elliptic leaves of Viscum obscurum are obovate with rounded tips, tapering bases and entire margins. Here even flaunting some shine, they curve in gracefully. The blades are dark to pale or yellowy green, smooth and leathery.
The spaced nodes along the ridged green stems seem busy places where branching into more stems and flowering occur from the axils. The tiny spring flowers grow in small clusters. They are creamy green and inconspicuous.
The globular fruit are white or pale pink and translucent with old, thin styles persisting at their tips. The berries are present from midsummer to end autumn, eaten by birds (Moriarty, 1997; Bond and Goldblatt, 1984; iSpot).
