Boronia crenulata – Aniseed Boronia

Boronia crenulata is a very ornamental small shrub to around a metre tall and wide, with massed pink flowers in spring to summer. It likes dappled shade and moist but well drained soils. 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. Good in the flower garden, and does well in containers. Prune lightly after flowering if needed.
