Plant of the Month - November

Ceratopetalum gummiferum

Ceratopetalum gummiferum

The flowers are tiny and white in November, attracting flies and native bees. After pollination the sepals enlarge and turn deep pink and red in December-January, enclosing the fruit. The colour attracts birds to distribute the capsules held within the sepals. The colourful red display which covers the 2-4 m shrub or small tree leads to the common name NSW Christmas bush.
