Philotheca myoporoides 'Galaxy' (Long-leaf wax flower) - This is rounded evergreen shrub to 3-4 ft. tall and wide with aromatic foliage. In late fall into early spring appear long stems of pink buds that open to a profusion of white flowers. Best planted in dappled shade, but will also do well in full sun. It tolerates frost and extended dry periods and appreciates well-drained soils, especially if regularly irrigated. This plant is great for cut flowers and cut foliage and responds well to being lightly pruned or sheared back hard. Until recently Philotheca myoporoides was sold as Eriostemon myoporoides. This plant differs from the cultivar 'Profusion' in that it has longer stems of flowers. A 2003 UCSC Koala Blooms Introduction.
