Boronia megastigma 'Lutea'....The Herb Garden scores a cool Australian Plant
GrayC gently removes it from its packing so that we can all admire it. I was intrigued by a pink-flowered Boronia a few years ago that, I think, was featured on UBC Botany Photo of the Day. I did some research and realized that, not quite so pretty, but mch more fragrant was this species. This one came from Australian Native Plants Nursery in Ventura California. Good nursery; I've a few of their plants in Florida including Xanthorrhoea, the Grass Tre. Wonderful selection, good plants, not inexpensive.
