Boronia megastigma ‘Virtuoso’ – Brown Boronia

A small shrub growing to around a metre high, with lots of beautifully perfumed flowers in spring. The flowers are a very dark brown with contrasting yellow interior. It grows best in well drained soils with reliable moisture levels, mulch to create a cool root run, rocks placed on soil also help with this. Likes part shade. Great as a potted plant that can be moved to places where the fragrance can be enjoyed while in flower. Can be short lived, but worth growing for the intense perfume.
