Chamelaucium uncinatum – Geraldton Wax

The profusion of long lasting waxy flowers on a spreading but dense shrub are the outstanding features of this iconic Australian plant. It is one of the world’s great cut flowers and is used extensively as a backing flower in arrangements. It makes a wonderful feature shrub or screen plant in the garden especially in areas with drier summers. The normal pink variety is more hardy than the darker colours. The foliage is aromatic when crushed. Give it a light trim after flowering.
