Boronias inspire intense love among native plant growers, and this new variety will definitely be adored for its abundant gently fragrant purple-pink flowers, bigger than average, which appear throughout the year in sheltered gardens. This one has a nice upright habit too, which makes for a well-behaved plant in your mixed borders.
Boronia crenulata mallee 'Super Dooper' DESCRIPTION: Native flowering shrub with small slender evergreen leaves, scented purple-pink bell-shaped flowers throughout most of the year. USES: Native and cottage gardens. Can be grown in pots and containers. PLANTING: Plant in a full sun to part shade position. 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: 1m H x 1m W. YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot height is 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
