The "Purple Pride" variant of the Geraldton Wax (Chamelaucium) is a delight with its magenta-purple flowers. Originating from Western Australia, this large shrub bursts into a display of radiant blooms from Makuru to Djilba (winter to early spring). Its vivid blossoms make it a prime choice for those aiming to infuse their gardens with a pop of rich colour and ornamental charm.

For those planting "Purple Pride" directly in the ground, enriching sandy soils with a quality soil conditioner will ensure the plant thrives. This robust shrub requires regular watering during its early stages but soon becomes quite resilient, with additional hydration only essential during particularly hot spells. To maintain its vibrant blooms, a dose of fertiliser during Djilba (early spring) and Djeran (autumn) is recommended.
