Christmas Bush

Did you know?

Ceratopetalum gummiferum, the New South Wales Christmas Bush, is a tall shrub whose flowers turn bright red-pink around Christmas time. Whether they are pink or red depends on how much sunshine the bush receives. Lots of sunshine result in a red flower.

Selection and Care

Most Christmas bush is grown in NSW and it is only around for a short period around Christmas. It makes the perfect Christmas flower either by itself or as a filler. Look for open vibrantly coloured flowers. Cut a minimum of 2cm off the stem, strip the bottom leaves off, and put in cold water with a flower preservative. Change water daily for optimum lifespan.
