The "Tumbelina" cultivar of Geraldton Wax, Chamelaucium, flaunts dazzling bright pink flowers, creating a splendid display from Makuru to Kambarang (winter to spring). A Western Australian native, this particular form is renowned for its elongated, weeping or cascading branches, making it an exquisite choice for gardens seeking a touch of elegance and drama. Besides its ornamental appeal, "Tumbelina" also serves as an inviting source for local wildlife.

For optimal growth, "Tumbelina" should be planted in the ground and, in sandy terrains, benefits from the addition of a soil conditioner. During its first Bunuru (summer), deeper watering is recommended; however, once rooted, it proves to be a resilient, drought-hardy specimen. To ensure sustained flourishing, a light application of native plant fertiliser in Djilba (early spring) is beneficial.
