Boronia ‘Purple Jared’

Dense small shrub. A deep purple flowered hybrid of Brown Boronia (B. megastigma). Outstanding cut flower with delightful perfume. Prune straight after flowering.

It likes a cool root run, which can be achieved by putting a rock under the root ball at planting time, and also use some rocks on the soil surface- these absorb the heat in summertime instead of the soil getting hot.
