Western Australian Christmas Tree

Nuytsia floribunda Western Australian Christmas Tree

These trees are all in blossom now and the colour of the blossom is amazing. This tree grows naturally only in Western Australia. It is partly a root parasite in that its roots attach themselves to the roots of other plants and gain part of their growth requirements from the host species sometimes up to 150 metres away.
