Philotheca myoporoides ‘Bournda Beauty’ – Wax Flower

A hardy small shrub that adapts well to a wide range of environments. Profuse flowering is a feature. Great plant for a shrubbery or pot, and can be trimmed to shape the plant if desired, though untrimmed plants are quite attractive as well. The blooms make good cut flowers, and the foliage is also useful as a filler in flower bunches. The foliage has an aromatic perfume.
