All about the Chamelaucium

Chamelaucium, also known as Waxflower, is native to Australia. There, the shrubs grow wild. The flower owes its name Waxflower to the waxy layer that lies over the leaves and flowers. Bruising the leaves releases a pleasant fragrance. The leaves also look a bit like pine needles. This makes them very nice in winter bouquets, for a wintry touch. Waxflower is also harvested in bud. The buds look like little berries. Waxflower in bud has a completely different look to the flowering version.

Something completely different again! Use 'foliage wax' in winter bouquets, for example, for a surprising, playful look. Most Waxflowers come from Israel, where they are grown in abundance. The growing conditions there are excellent: slightly desert-like, but not too dry, no frost and lots of sunlight..
