6 Christmas Native Plants

Put aside the conventional plants this upcoming Christmas season — why not introduce a range of native plants into your living space. These natives are perfect for the focal point of any living space or large room. At this time of the year, our nursery is flooded with a large range of botanicals and bush tucker perfect for the summer holiday period — contact our Nursery Manager Richard Burnell at +61 421 111 419 or for availability of Australian native bush tucker plants.

1. Sturt’s Desert Pea

Bold and bright — Sturt’s desert pea is well-suited to pots. Ensure to plant in a free-draining potting mix and feed regularly to produce flowers.

2. Bottlebrush

Fresh cut Bottlebrush is great for centrepiece arrangements or a potted gift.

3. Callitris Pine

Featuring dark green foliage and the classic pine tree shape. This plant grows well in areas with low rainfall and rocky soil — making it the perfect ‘Aussie Christmas tree’. Alternatively for indoors, plant in a pot.

4. Woolly Bush

This plant has silvery foliage and grows well in a pot — it can also be trimmed to mimic a classic pine shape.

5. Holly-leaf Grevillea

Known as ‘native holly’ — this plant is perfect in Christmas wreaths and table decor as an alternative to European holly.

6. Christmas Bush
The NSW Christmas bush features a bright mass of red flowers — perfect for offcuts to pop into a vase or simply plant in the garden as an ornamental.
