Chamelaucium or Geraldton wax
Chamelaucium, Waxflowers, Geralton Wax or ‘Wax Plants’ are used both as a drought tolerant garden plant as well as a very popular cut flower.
A native shrub growing to 2m, in the home garden they are often kept pruned to form a shaped bush.
A well drained soil and a sunny position will suit best. The flowers are used as cut flowers, and in fact they are Australia’s leading commercial wildflower.
Grafted varieties of Chamelaucium or Geraldton wax are more resistant to disease. Cultivars such as Chamelaucium ‘Sarah’s Delight’, pictured’ have improved flowers and better growth habit.
