Just like Christmas decorations in the shops, the Christmas Orchid is on show too! and it is Sun Smart! If you look very closely at the individual flowers of the Christmas orchid you can see a small child with legs and arms, a cute little face - all under a very big sun hat.

Commersonia bartramia – Brown Kurrajong Often called “Snow in Summer” this delightful small tree is fast growing and suitable for the average backyard. A feature of this tree is the mass of creamy flowers borne from December to March, followed by chestnut-like spiky seed capsules. Sporadic flowering also occurs most of the year.
