- Stunning golden flowers
- Unique in the world
- Western Australia’s most spectacular tree
Named after the early explorer Pieter Nuyts who almost found Australia, the WA Christmas Tree lights up the WA coastline around November and December each year. It makes a striking tree with its large golden spears of flowers.
Interestingly, the plants are semi-parasitic and take a small portion of their nutrients from surrounding host plants (this does not damage the host plants). Reports suggest hosts such as couch grass or Crepe Myrtle can be used to success.
