I'm not sure where you can find seeds, but here are two California nurseries that specialize in native Australian plants. The first is Australian Native Plants Nursery in Ventura California ( They list Boronia megastigma 'Lutea' available in 1 gallon pots for $12.00 (plus shipping and handling). A second resource is California ( ) Follow the catalog link to their Australian Catalog. They list Boronia megastigma available in 1 gallon pots.

Does anyone know where I can get Brown Boronia (B.megastigma) Seeds or plants? It is listed in the Western Sunset Garden Book. Thanks for any information.

RE: Locating Brown Boronia (B.megastigma) Seeds or Plants

When I googled it [I ALWAYS start my search that way], I learned it is native to Australia. That could make it harder to find in the US.

Another entry revealed that wild harvesting in Washington state is endangering it there.

Evidently, it is avaible in some nuseries in WA. I have NO idea where else one may find it, but ask your local nursery, they should know from where one could order it.
