So how about breaking the mould and having a true-blue Aussie Christmas Tree this year.
This article is extracted from the Yuruga Newsletter
Vol 12 No 4 (December 2004).
The focus of this article is for gardeners in tropical Australia.

with minor modifications for local conditions.
Native gardens all across the tropics are bursting into bloom for Christmas.
Here in our Yuruga gardens we have four different native cassias in flower all at once, making a blaze of yellow and orange hues against the bright blue summer sky and a beautiful carpet of fallen petals scattered on our lawns and pathways. What an absolute delight!
