Chamelaucium megalopetalum   Large Waxflower Endemic

Chamelaucium megalopetalum whole Chamelaucium megalopetalum flower

This is one of the well known Waxflower shrubs endemic to the south west of Australia. Waxflowers can be pollinated by insects or birds or by specialised mechanisms where the pollen, in a lipid slurry, is released from the anthers (dehiscence) and on the stigmatic hairs while the flower is still in bud.

C. megalopetalum is considered attractive and easy enough to cultivate for it to be offered for sale as a garden plant by nurseries.
