Geraldton Waxflower is a West Australian native flowering bush that produces an ubundance of tiny round pink, purple or white flowers. Waxflower one of the most widely-used cut flowers from Australia, because of its hardiness, longevity and usefulness in floral arranging, as a colourful ‘filler’ flower. The lemony flowers grow from clusters of sweet buds that branch out on stems covered in tiny green needles.
In nature, Geraldton Wax grows best in dry soils and flowers from June to November. The flowers should be kept dry and away from ethylene gas (from car exhausts, for example) in order to last. Geraldton Wax looks and smells great bunched on its own, or when used to soften bunches of assorted flowers.
