Boronia megastigma


Fine bright green foliage and beautifully fragrant ruddy brown bell-shaped flowers in winter and spring, which are lime-yellow inside and make a long-lasting mass display. Foliage has a spicy aroma when crushed. Well suited to a whole range of free-draining soils. Does best when roots are kept cool and moist. Protect from hot winds and requires watering even as a mature plant. Ensure soil is well mulched and kept moist to prevent from drying out. A long-lasting cut flower. Plant in part sun to dappled shade. Great for container gardens.
