Golden Hollywood

Auranticarpa rhombifolia
This a third dry rainforest / vine scrub plant which can be described with the same bullet points as I put in the “White beetroot” article above.
The orange seed capsules are very attractive to birds, and hang on the plant, slowly losing their seeds to the birds, until the flowers start appearing in spring.
They are such hardy plants that they are used as street trees in Toowoomba and Highfields.
