First time to market - we are stoked to have this BRAND NEW range of Helix waxflowers for you, fresh from the plant breeder. Local Hero is a lovely wax, warm rosy pink with deep maroon centres.

May we also recommend watching one of the loveliest films ever made, Local Hero, starring Burt Lancaster, Doctor Who, and Ewan MacGregor's uncle in a charming tale of big oil v small town.

In SA TAS WA? We can't ship this to you for biosecurity reasons.

Most of our waxflowers are propagated in summer after they finish flowering, so tubestock plants are usually available for sale late January-early February onwards until they sell out.
