Chamelaucium Paddy's Pink - waxflower

Back in stock: seasonal - see description
Out of stock
This beautiful hybrid between native Geraldton wax and feather flower creates a big bushy shrub with dense clusters of flowers in clear pink. Look closely and you'll see that each flower has a feathery set of petals to match its featherflower parent. For best results these plants need a Mediterranean climate, like that in the southern states and WA; but give it an airy situation and very free-draining soil and try your luck in NSW and QLD.

Most of our waxflowers are usually available for sale late January-early February onwards until they sell out.

Chamelaucium x Verticordia 'Paddy's Pink' - Geraldton Wax, waxflower

APPEARANCE: Native medium sized shrub with a upright growth habit and rose-pink flowers in spring. The flowers have fringed petals reminiscent of the Verticordia parent. Foliage has a spicy fragrance.

CARE: Mulch away from the stem, and water regularly directly into the soil until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks.
