|This Christmas Bush has been growing in my front garden for the past ten years. It has kind of struggled to gain any real momentum but always puts on few vase-full of brilliant flowers for Christmastime. I've never been game enough to try relocating for fear of losing it forever. The first flowers are cream which gradually turn to the deep-red star-shaped flowers.
2017 would be I think the most red it's ever been. Perhaps because of a feeding of cow-manure and well-timed rains in Spring?
You will see there a photograph from 1882, with Christmas Bush being taken to the markets.
2013 flowers for indoors.
If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.

|Thank you for introducing us to this New South Wales Christmas Tree, Carole.
And that is an interesting historical photo of the boatload of blossoms going to the market in Sydney.
