Botanical Name: Nuytsia floribunda
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.
We recommend the use of Wildflower Seed Starter Granules for improved germination rates and speed. These granules provide chemicals normally found in bushfire smoke that stimulate native seed germination.
Plant Height: 7m
We hope you enjoy these Wildflower seeds, just another great example of seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!
