Boronia heterophylla ‘Lipstick’

A small upright shrub growing to around 2.5 metres tall, it has masses of bright purple-pink bell  flowers in winter and spring, which make great cut flowers. The foliage is aromatic and the flowers are lightly perfumed as well. Best in a partly shaded position with well drained soil, also a good potted plant. Regular summer watering and mulching will help to prolong plant life.
