Nuytsia floribunda – Western Australian Christmas Tree

Nuytsia floribunda is a gorgeous Western Australian plant around Christmas time, when it has eye catching displays of bright yellow to orange flowers. It is a hemiparasitic plant, meaning that it needs a host plant to grow on and get some nutrients from. It can grow as a shrub or to ten metres high. It will grow readily from seed, but is unlikely to survive for more than a year or two outside of it’s natural area.
