Description

The "Cha Cha" cultivar of Geraldton Wax (Chamelaucium) is renowned for its striking red buds that unfurl into light pink blossoms. Native to Western Australia, this medium-sized shrub flowers a bit later than others, showcasing its stunning display from Makuru to Djilba (winter to early spring). Whether planted as a standout feature or grouped in a mixed border, its blooms are a delightful addition to any garden space.

When planting "Cha Cha" in the ground, consider enhancing poor, sandy soils with a dedicated soil conditioner to support its vibrant blossoming. This Geraldton Wax thrives in full sun and benefits from consistent watering, especially during the flowering period. To boost its floral display, fertilise in Djilba (early spring) and Djeran (autumn) with a balanced garden fertiliser.
