Viscum rotundifolium, the red berry mistletoe or in Afrikaans litjiestee (little joints tea), is a perennial hemiparasite that occurs in every province of South Africa, but most commonly in the Western and Eastern Cape. It also grows widespread in southern Africa from near sea level to land at elevations of almost 2000 m.
The plant is evergreen, variable and uses a wide variety of host plants, including other mistletoes. The branched stems are brittle, forming clumps of about 75 cm in diameter. Branching happens at almost every node in the photo.
The variable leaves of V. rotundifolium are fleshy and ovate to elliptic or almost round as the specific name says. In the photo the leaves are ovate or oblong with pointed or rounded tips and finely hairy. They are often grey-green, but may be green in various shades. Two opposite leaves grow at each node. The leaves may be up to 1 cm in diameter.
The flowers are small and creamy green, inconspicuous. The red berries are spherical, about 5 mm in diameter (Vlok and Schutte-Vlok, 2010; Wikipedia).
