Last week I featured the Boronia pinnata, this week I am featuring the Boronia fraseri.
Boronia Fraseri Australia Native Plant
This is a slightly more obscure variety of the Boronia family. It grows and looks much like many other species, but generally doesn’t succeed as well as a garden plant, making it less desirable for most native growers.
Because of this there is actually very little information available about how to grow it. However, I don’t just want to advocate easy plants to grow, I want to provide my readers with some challenging plants.
Common Name: Fraser’s Boronia
Flower Colour: Pink
Foliage Colour: Green
Growth Habit: Shrub to 2m
Growing Fraser’s Boronia
If you like a medium challenge, I believe the fraseri will be a good one for you. For best results with the fraseri, plant it in a good loam soil which is well draining.
The Boronia fraseri definitely prefers a part shade location and grows best in temperate to cool climates, reportedly being able to handle mild frost conditions.
Also see our guide on Boronia Megastigma and Boronia Telopea. Why not give Boronia Fraseri a go and let me know how it goes!
Great information 🙂
