THE LANGUAGE OF WAX FLOWERS


How these delicate blooms came to receive their name...

Chamelaucium, also known as wax flower, is a genus of shrubs that originated in Western Australia. There are currently 14 known species around the world. 


They are known as wax flowers, due to the waxy feel of the petals.

Wax flowers can grow up to six foot tall and can be found in wonderful shades of white, purple, pink, yellow and red.


As well as being beautiful on their own, wax flowers are one of our favourite accent flowers to mix into our bouquets. Their delicate petals are perfect for filling out bouquets and they have a beautiful fresh scent.


Due to the variety of colours, wax flowers are also a great addition to wedding bouquets, they create texture within the bouquet without overpowering any other flowers.
