Photo of Osyris, Osyris alba in bloom, in its natural environment in Chania district in Greece. It is a dioecious evergreen shrub, which has long stems and small linear – lanceolate leaves. It flowers in spring and its male and female flowers appear in different plants. It grows in scrublands and rocky places. It is a semiparasite, which is, a parasitic plant that contains some chlorophyll and therefore is capable of photosynthesising
