Technically, all mistletoe species are hemiparasites, because they do perform at least a little photosynthesis for at least a short period of their life cycle.Some species of the largest family, Loranthaceae, have small, insect-pollinated flowers (as with Santalaceae), but others have spectacularly showy, large, bird-pollinated flowers.Most mistletoe seeds are spread by birds that eat the 'seeds' (in actuality drupes).A mistletoe seed germinates on the branch of a host tree or shrub, and in its early stages of development it is independent of its host.It commonly has two or even four embryos, each producing its hypocotyl, that grows towards the bark of the host under the influence of light and gravity, and potentially each forming a mistletoe plant in a clump.

Later it forms a haustorium that penetrates the host tissue and takes water and nutrients from the host plant.
