Regelia Velutina, also known as the Gondwana Christmas tree, is a stunning shrub when in flower. The tips of the branches are adorned with large clusters of vibrant red to orange flowers, which attract birds and butterflies and provide a valuable food source during the warmer months. Pruning after flowering will help maintain its vigour and compact shape.

This striking plant is an excellent choice as a pot specimen or feature plant in a garden bed, and it will attract birds and insects to your garden. Like most Western Australian natives, Regelia requires well-drained soil and good drainage. It prefers a full sun position and almost sandy soils and can withstand drought and light frost once established.

Occurs naturally in a few limited areas of the IBRA Region of Esperance Plains in Western Australia.

Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn in temperate climates, avoiding the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 18-22°.

Sow seed on a porous seed-raising mix and cover lightly. Do not bury the seed deeply.
Place in a warm shaded or semi-shaded position to avoid dying out.
The growing medium should be well draining but should remain moist between watering.
Germination should occur in 21-60 days depending on the temperature and conditions. 

Pre-treatment of smoke is recommended for this species.
Many members of this genus are responsive to the pre-treatment of smoke. Although germination may occur without smoke treatment it has proved to be beneficial in reducing the number of days to germination and increasing germination rates in this species.
Smoke treatments are simple and can be undertaken either by soaking the seed overnight or by applying to the surface after sowing, both provide good results. Smoke treatments are available by clicking here.
