What is an Australian Christmas tree?
This tree, native to western Australia, produces yellow-orange flowers during the Christmas season, hence its name. It can grow to 33 feet and features a dried fruit with three broad, leathery wings. It gets its water and nutrients by attaching itself to the roots of small plants, a practice that can damage underground electrical and other cables.
