Boronia crenulata 'Shark Bay' - A dense, dwarf shrub with small, aromatic leaves. Dainty pink flowers bloom year- round, with heaviest bloom late winter to spring. Prefers sun or part shade in a sheltered spot. Marginally frost hardy and does well in moist soil. Well adapted to cultivation, even to clay soils. Good choice for containers. This is a great plant that always looks good, blooms its head off, and isn't touchy to grow. Hardy to 20-25 F.  This description is based on our research and observations of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or have additional cultural tips that would aid others growing Boronia crenulata 'Shark Bay' .
