There is not an awful lot of information available about Boronia ‘Telopea Valley Star’ however I will provide you with what I can. I wanted to feature this cultivar, even though it is similar to Boronia fraseri, because I really like the simple contrast between the light pink flowers and the bright, light green leaves.

It is no surprise that it looks similar to Boronia fraseri because ‘Telopea Valley Star’ is a hybrid of Boronia fraseri and Boronia mollis.

Growing Boronia ‘Telopea Valley Star’

Being a hybrid, there is no specific naturally occurring location, however the it has been proven to grow well on in cool to temperate climates on the East Coast of Australia. Testing in tropical area’s has been limited.

This cultivar is generally quite hardy, able to survive mild frost and mild drought conditions. For other Boronia species, check out Boronia pinnata and Boronia megastigma.

Boronia ‘Telopea Valley Star’ also responds really well to regular pruning and shaping. In this variety, as in many, regular pruning really does encourage it to grow more densely.

I couldn’t say what sort of garden position would be best for Boronia ‘Telopea Valley Star, however I would plant it in a position that is at least part shade as most boronias I have grown have required some shade to really thrive.
