Boronia anemonifolia

Sticky Boronia, Narrow-Leaved Boronia

Care

Lighting

Inside the house Boronia anemonifolia is suitable for bright to sunny places. During summer a sunny to part shaded spot on the balcony or in the garden is welcome. There it has to be slowly accustomed to the sun, which is no longer filtered through a window.

Soil

Regular mixes for container plants, cacti and succulents, herbs and vegetables can be used.

Boronia anemonifolia

Allow the soil to dry to about 80 % of the pots height.

Watering

Allow the soil to moderately dry between the waterings. Water sparingly if placed cool during winter. Avoid overwatering such as drying out.

On a sunny spot the Sticky Boronia has to be watered daily during the hot summer weeks.

Feeding

Feeding can be done with liquid fertilizers, sticks, granules or pellets. Liquid fertiliser can be given every 4th to 8th week from spring to fall. Long-term fertilizers (sticks, granules, pellets) in spring and summer. Currently bought or repotted plants don’t need to be fed for the first year.

Temperature

If you want the Sticky Boronia to bloom in spring a winter rest period at 5 to 10 °C (41 to 50 °F) is ideal. For a short time the evergreen shrub should be able to withstand temperatures of up to -3 °C (37 °F). But i haven’t tested that yet.

Propagation

The Sticky Boronia can be grown from cuttings.
