Boronia Heterophylla in my opinion, is the toughest of the Boronia range by far... fragrant foliage and fragrant pink flowers, much hardier than its sooky relatives brown boronia, yellow boronia, & the white forms.... we have tried all of them over our 26 years and have found most of the pink forms, Purple Jared, Jack Maguires Red and Dark prince to be the best 4 varieties available, which is why we stock them and nothing else.
Boronia Heterophylla is an upright bushy evergreen Australian Native shrub with narrow dark green fragrant foliage, with a mass of fragrant bright pink flowers in the spring months.
Pink Boronia, as we refer to it, will grow up to 1.5 metres tall, by 1 metre wide ( can grow larger if really happy), loves cooler climates, will tolerate light frost, is best planted in moist, but well drained soils in a dappled shaded garden.
Pink Boronia is ideal for shady gardens, screening/hedges, shrubberies and also in pots and containers. It can also be used for cut flowers.
Lightly prune after flowering to promote and maintain new bushy compact growth and fertilise once per year with a good quality native fertiliser, you can try our Agriboost, which we use on everything in the garden.
Prostanthera Ovalifolia Compacta, Dwarf Mint Bush is a mounded Australian Native Shrub with aromatic green foliage, that is offset in the Spring & Summer months with masses of mauve - purple flowers.
Compacta will grow 1 to 2 metres tall to 1.5 metres wide in a full sun to filtered light position in most soil types. Water well in the Summer months and prune after flowering to promote bushy growth, mulch well to retain soil moisture and suppress weeds.
Philotheca Myoporoides or previously known as Eriostemon is a hardy, compact evergreen shrub, with slender blue green scented foliage. Pink flower buds open to white star like flowers which are freely borne along long stems. Eriostemon can grow up to 2 metres tall in a sunny to partly shaded position in moist well drained soils, Eriostemon need a good prune to maintain shape and fresh scented growth and are ideal for planting under trees, or using for hedging, borders, and as a feature shrub. Eriostemon are also great for cut flower stems for indoor decorations and flower bunches.
