Boronia purdieana

A dense shrub with small narrow leaves, ideal for garden or landscape use. This form produces masses of yellow flowers which are strongly perfumed through Winter and Spring. The bell shaped flowers change from red to yellow as they open creating a striking display of colour. Performs best in sandy or well-drained soil with regular watering and is moderately frost-tolerant once established. Mulch to keep the roots cool, also you can put 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.
