WA Christmas Tree
An iconic WA tree, well-known for its golden orange flowers that appear in summer at Christmas time. This is a root parasite plant, which means the roots attach to the roots of other plants to satisfy its own growth needs. It is reported that it can reach other plant roots of up to 150m away. Neighbouring plants of any kind can prove to be hosts (including grass like couch), and if more than one host is nearby then they should not suffer or die.
