Wandering through public gardens
or simply walking along the street.
Sudden sights of flowering shrubs
Deep pink lightening to off white
From all over this great state
Sure signs of Winter’s end.
Possibly the most common proof that spring is here is the sudden flowering of the wax plants. Not just a few blooms but a total recolouring of the plant from its wintergreen.
Although there are wax plants named after many towns in the South West of Western Australia. All different. All with waxy flowers of shades ranging from deep pink to white.
The Geraldton Wax. The largest flowers and the widest range of colours.
Long lasting, they make an ideal cut flower.
Providing you grow your own shrub. As so many do.
Cutting branches of this attractive flower are not permitted, either in public gardens or out in the bush.
