Sizing guide

Boronia megastigma 'Jack McGuires Red' is an aromatic, compact shrub known for its unique and vibrant red-brown flowers with yellow interiors. Blooming from late winter to spring, these bell-shaped flowers are highly fragrant and visually striking. The plant grows to about 1 meter in height and features fine, dark green foliage.

To grow Boronia megastigma 'Jack McGuires Red', plant it in a partially shaded location with well-draining, slightly acidic soil. The plant thrives in cool, moist conditions and does not tolerate extreme heat or drought well. Regular watering is crucial, especially during dry periods, but avoid waterlogging. Mulching around the base helps retain soil moisture and protect the roots. Light pruning after flowering helps maintain its shape and encourages bushier growth. This Boronia variety is perfect for shaded borders, woodland gardens, and containers, adding fragrance and a pop of color to garden spaces.
