Ceratopetalum Shiraz - Christmas bush
Adds native Aussie spirit to your Christmas deco. Shiraz has larger leaves than Albery's Red, and larger, more deeply coloured, bracts. The warmer your region, the earlier the red bracts and tiny white starry flowers appear, from late spring through midsummer. Fantastic as a cut flower for wreaths and arrangements.
We propagate our Christmas bush immediately after flowering. This means it is usually available from late summer-autumn only (an ideal time to plant!) If it is out of season, please put your email in the notification box and we will message you when the annual batch of plants is ready for sale.
