Boronia anemonifolia – Sticky Boronia

A fast-growing shrub with strongly scented leaves, this native blooms abundantly, making an attractive specimen for garden or landscape use. The dark green foliage covers the plant densely making it a great screening plant. It also makes a great feature plant, as the unique star shaped pink and white flowers which cover the plant throughout Spring and Summer create an eye-catching display. Performs best in sandy or well-drained soil with regular watering and is moderately frost-tolerant once established.
