Chamelaucium x Verticordia ‘Paddy’s Pink’ – Wax Flower

This medium sized shrub is a hybrid between Chamelaucium and Verticordia. It has a profusion of rose pink flowers in spring, which are great cut flowers. It grows to around 2 metres tall and wide. The foliage has a spicy fragrance.
Likes a well drained soil in a sunny spot, and dislikes too much humidity. Prune lightly after flowering to encourage a more dense habit, and feed in spring with a low phosphorus native fertilizer.
