West Australian Christmas Tree
Botanic Name : Nuytsia floribunda
This is the only member species of the genus Nuytsia in the world.
One of Australia’s most spectacular trees with its brilliant, heavy coverage of golden-orange, honey-scented flowers in late Spring and early Summer strikingly displayed against the dark green mass of soft needle-like leaves.
An evergreen which grows gradually to about 7m (23′). Drought and frost resistant.
A member of the Mistletoe family. Partly parasitic but will not harm its host plants.
So bright are the flowers that, during the flowering season, these trees were clearly visible from the sea to early explorers of the South-western coastline of Australia.
