Tasmanian native cherry

Blog reader June has been bushwalking in southern Tasmania a great deal in past weeks and recently was delighted to see many examples of the native cherry fruiting gloriously and conspicuously.  She sent through the following photos to share.

Her initial remark was Exaocarpus cupressiformis is hemiparasitic on the roots of mostly eucalypts.  How cool is that?  I’m reminded of you telling me about all the trees working together underground.

She provided a link to an article about the native cherry here (https://theconversation.com/native-cherries-are-a-bit-mysterious-and-possibly-inside-out-108760).

What a gorgeous jewel! Thanks June.
