The wax flower is one of Anne Swithinbank's favourite houseplants. This pendent shrub bears clusters of sweetly-scented, star-shaped, white flowers in summer. The fleshy leaves are rich green and up to 3cm (1 1/4in) long. Found growing wild from the Himalayas to North Burma, it needs a minimum temperature of 10C (50F). Grow in John Innes No 2 compost with added bark and keep spray reguarly to keep the humidity up. Water freely and feed monthly when in growth. Reduce the watering in winter but keep the compost moist. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
