A GROUP of eighteen flower producers have developed a marketing arrangement to sell brown boronia in Perth’s central city this spring.

Primary Industry Minister Monty House, pictured with Max Crowhurst and Chris Robinson, said CanTeen, a cancer support group for teenagers with cancer, launched the growers’ boronia at the recent CanTeen Festival.

“Under the arrangement, Rotary volunteers will sell the flowers over the coming weeks, with part of the sale proceeds going to CanTeen,” Mr House said.

“The supply of fresh brown boronia will be sourced only from cultivated material grown on farms in the South West and Great Southern regions, reducing the pressure on wild boronia.

“The flower sprays will be branded with an eye catching logo that clearly identifies the CanTeen link and that fact the flowers are sustainably cultivated in the South West.”
