Boronia 'Purple Jared' is a dense small shrub. It has deep purple flowers in spring, and is a hybrid of the popular Brown Boronia (B. megastigma). Outstanding cut flower with delightful perfume. Likes a well drained soil in a partly shaded spot. Prune lightly straight after flowering to encourage dense growth. Fertilise with a low phosphorus native plant food in spring. Performs really well in a large container.
