False Boronia

False Boronia 1

We noticed this plant last time we were walking in Kings Park – and also at Bold Park, Blackwall Reach and Minim Cove. It is called False Boronia (Phyllanthus calycinus) and has small cream/white flowers.

Its common name must refer to the pods that form on the plant. They look remarkably like the brownish flowers on Boronia, as we’ll show next time we see some Boronia in flower.
