Boronia crenulata is a very ornamental small shrub to around a metre tall and wide, with massed pink flowers in spring to summer. It likes dappled shade and moist but well drained soils. It likes a cool root run, which can be achieved by putting 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. Good in the flower garden, and does well in containers. Prune lightly after flowering if needed.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
