Tasmanian Christmas Bush

While walking around Baranduda roadsides at the moment you may catch a delightful aroma of the Tassie xmas bush in flower – sweet bursaria or bursaria spinosa. This is one of my favorite local plants. Its a haven for insects and small birds and so plays a crucial role in local ecology.
