Don't you just love a native Australian Christmas Wreath made of Wattle and Eucalyptus leaves? Thanks to our friends @justbecauseblooms here's the one that kicked off our Christmas inspiration this year here at I Still Call Australia Home®
Eucalyptus ficifolia: Australian National Botanic Gardens in Canberra, the capital city of Australia. The garden supports a living collection of around 74,000 individual plants arranged in 40 hectares of themed sections. It is the largest scientific collection of Australian native plants in which the collection originates from plants sourced from the wild, accompanied by herbarium specimens for taxonomic study.
Buy EUCALYPTUS burracoppinensis, Burracoppin Mallee, seed
EUCALYPTUS burracoppinensis. A small tree from the central wheat belt of Western Australia; rough barked trunk is complimented with a lovely smooth grey bark on the branches. Flowers appear in late winter through to December. The green yellow bud caps open to a creamy yellow flower up to 5cm across. Not often cultivated which is a pity as it is a great honey making tree attracting the birds and bees when in flower. A good windbreak tree.
