Boronia denticulata is a small to medium shrub that may reach a height of two metres. Usually plants that reach this height become a trifle straggly. Judicious pruning will keep plants dense, bushy and about 1 to 1.5 metres tall.

Boronia denticulata has flat leaves, about 40 millimetres long, two millimetres wide, tapered at both ends with minute teeth along the margins. The foliage is also strongly aromatic.

The four-petalled flowers are bright pink and carried on branching flower stalks above the foliage. Flowering is profuse and occurs in spring with sporadic blooming at other times. Plants will thrive in dappled shade.

Boronia denticulata is one of the hardiest members of the genus. The plant illustrated is growing in a garden on the Northern Tablelands, of New South Wales, on a well-drained slope.

Boronia denticulata is a beautiful shrub. A plant in full flower is a joy to behold.

Propagate from cuttings.
