or New South Wales Christmas Bush is an essential element in our Christmas decorating.
This Australian native shrub has masses of white flowers in spring followed by red, star shaped calyxes that appear in the weeks leading up to Christmas.
Bunches of these flowers become quite expensive around Christmas time as it is a highly sought item. We are lucky that we have a couple of mature plants that provide enough flowers to fill vases for ourselves, family and friends.
