The xylem water potentials of dwarf mistletoe shoots and the lodgepole pine branches on which they were growing were determined. A water potential gradient favorable to the dwarf mistletoe shoots indicates that the shoots are able to obtain water from their host even when the xylem of the latter is under considerable water stress.
