Description

The "Big Painted Lady" cultivar of Geraldton Wax, botanically known as Chamelaucium, proudly showcases large pink blooms. As a native gem from Western Australia, this medium-sized shrub presents its eye-catching flowers from Makuru to Djilba (winter to early spring), making it an ideal feature for gardens yearning for a touch of wintry elegance. These vibrant flowers are not only a garden spectacle but also serve beautifully in cut flower arrangements.

For those planting "Big Painted Lady" in the ground, enriching poor, sandy soils with a quality soil conditioner is highly recommended to foster optimal growth. A sunlit position is ideal for this shrub, accompanied by regular watering, especially during its initial growth phase. To maintain its health and to ensure a prolific blooming season, application of a balanced fertiliser in Djilba (early spring) and Djeran (autumn) is suggested.
