Boronia megastigma 'Jack Maguire's Red' (Red Boronia) - A small shrub to 3 feet tall with soft needle-like foliage and in winter to early spring appear the bell-shaped flowers of a deep orange red on the outside and yellow green in the interior. The foliage and flowers are fragrant and are a great addition to a cut flower bouquet. Plant in full sun in a very well-drained soil and irrigate regularly. Hardy to at least 20 F.

This cultivar was a seedling variant of Boronia megastigma that was selected in 1928 by the late Mr. Jack Maguire of Forest Road, Boronia, Victoria.
