About the fact sheet
Boronias are small- to medium-sized shrubs generally occurring in open forests, woodlands and heath communities. Boronia viridiflora is a shrub with stems, or branches, growing to 1.5–2 metres long. The stems of the shrub are angular and the leaves are oblanceolate (ovalshaped). It is known to flower and fruit from April to June. It can be distinguished from a similar species, Boronia quadrilata, by its smaller leaves, flowers and fruits.
