I got this Wax Flower plant many....many moons ago at Descanso Gardens in La Canada. I had it in the direct sun, as they had done at the gardens, but it seemed very angry. I put it in the shade and it didn't like that either. All of it's color faded away and it turned a very light green, so sad. I put it on our front patio and it seems pretty happy now. It has grown about three feet and has these lovely blooms that hang from the bottom. I don't know the lesson here but I try to watch the sun when I first move in a new place and see which plants like/hate the sun, etc. I hope to see some of the bright green color comes back into the leaves...we will see.
