“Wood-rose, a remarkable vegetable excrescence, resembling a flower with radiating corrugated petals carved from wood, caused by the union of the saucer-shaped placenta-like base of certain parasitic plants of the mistle-toe family with the foster-branch of the host and its persistence after the death of the plant.” -Whitney, 1911
