Geraldton Wax (Chamelaucium uncinatum)
The unerringly fake-looking flowers of Geraldton wax appear now and emphasise the beauty that can be found outdoors in winter. Most varieties of Geraldton
wax grow 2-3m, and like free-draining soils. They need full sun for optimum performance. Once established, they need little water. A light prune at
the end of flowering will encourage bushy growth.
We like them with: Eriostemon, native Fuchsia, Emu bush,Tea tree and Crowea.
