Boronia heterophylla x crassipes 'Lipstick' DESCRIPTION:  Tall slender native flowering shrub with small evergreen aromatic leaves, and lightly scented deep pink-magenta rounded bell-shaped flowers in winter-spring. USES: Native and cottage gardens, large pots, wildlife gardens. PLANTING: Plant in a sheltered spot in dappled shade. Free-draining slightly acid soil with plenty of organic matter will give best results. Mulch tubestock with gravel after planting to regulate soil temperatures and keep roots cool and moist as the young plant establishes. Tolerates a light frost. CARE: Water regularly - don't let plants dry out or become waterlogged. A prune once flowering has finished will help give the plant shape and encourage new growth - make it easier by cutting flowering stems to enjoy indoors. Follow with an application of a slow release fertiliser for natives, and fresh mulch. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 2.5m H x 0.5 m W. YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
