Chamelaucium uncinatum purple pride aka Geraldton wax. Endemic to Western Australia, its almost mandatory to have a geraldton wax in the garden somewhere, they are so gorgeous when grown & in full bloom, beautiful flowers for the vase & so hardy once established.
There he is looking a little forlorn but natives are fast growers & this time next year it will be at least double this size. In this picture also I have an Alogyne, Acacia, Conostylis, Hebe & Luecadendron. Front western corner next to footpath.
Mum was a little reluctant to part with this pretty Leptospermum scorparian, Ashburton wax aka New Zealand tea tree, but it grows to 2m in height & they have no room left in their garden, so lucky me!
The tea tree is also planted in the front garden, but closer to the house. I wanted to get them in quickly as we are expecting some rain tomorrow, hopefully it will go east as well.
