Chamelaucium uncinatum 'Purple Pride' (Geraldton Waxflower) - This is a dark selection of Chamelaucium uncinatum that grows to 6 to 7 feet tall by as wide with long dark green foliage that densely lines the dark red stems. The winter to spring (January - May) 1/2 inch wide dark rosy-purple flowers with a white central ring are slightly larger than the other varieties. This evergreen shrub has light green foliage and the leaves densely clothe the stems. It can grow to about six feet by six feet. It is drought tolerant and appreciates good drainage and is hardy to about 25 degrees F. It makes a great filler for flower arrangements. 'Purple Pride' is one of the most popular older varieties of waxflower.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Chamelaucium uncinatum 'Purple Pride'.
