Wax Flower - Apulia Plants

Wax Flower

The Wax flower is an evergreen shrub that originates from Australia belonging to the family Myrtaceae. It has needle-shaped, perfumed and light green little leaves. It produces a lot of little flowers with five petals with a waxy consistence (that’s why it’s called Wax flower) that, depending on the variety, are white, pink, lilac, purple. Thanks to the resistance to drought and to the long lasting of the blooming, the wax flower is also cultivated to produce cut flowers.
