I have moved into a new house in the Northwest a couple of years ago. I love this lovely bush, but I don't know the name. The bees love it too, and since it is by the front door I would like to relocate it a bit further, how and can I do it?
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
Do you think I could dig it out and replant it somewhere else?
Excellent clear pics.
Where are you? Is this growing in UK as it is from Australia.
Philotheca myoporoides.....common name long-leaf wax flower.
P.S...I would love to grow this shrub...far too cold up here.
It is absolutely gorgeous, really really like it!
It is amazing how plants from all over the world are happy to live here.
Winters have been milder past few years.
I suspect a cold winter might kill it.
Same family as Correa which we used to grow in Wales...till one bad winter when we lost them all.
Up here our Choisya gets hit badly each winter ..even though not that cold..wind damage probably.
If you have that beauty in your garden what other beauties /treasures have you inherited.

" P. myoporoides is an erect, bushy, dense, evergreen shrub with oblong, aromatic, dark green leaves, paler underneath, and pink buds opening to white flowers from autumn to spring or summer."
I am so jealous!!!!
The few other plant I have recognised so far are Dog roses, Azalea, Blue bell, Columbine. I have this other plants growing in one of the border so if you could identify it too that would be great too :
1.5 feet hight, slightly silky leaves, growing under conifer edge, no flower (yet)?
A neighbour suggested Lilly of the Incas maybe
Growing under Dog Roses, around 3 ft high, could it be a weed?
