Boronia warangensis is a species of erect, woody shrub that is endemic to Queensland. It has bipinnate leaves and groups of between five and twenty-five or more white flowers in leaf axils.


Boronia warangensis is an erect, woody shrub that typically grows to a height of about 2 m (6 ft 7 in). It has bipinnate leaves 15–56 mm (0.59–2.20 in) long and 18–90 mm (0.71–3.54 in) wide with between five and seven leaflets on a petiole 7–17 mm (0.28–0.67 in) long. The end leaflet is 7–30 mm (0.28–1.18 in) long and 1–2.5 mm (0.039–0.098 in) wide and the side leaflets are similar but longer. The flowers are white and are arranged in groups of up between five and twenty-five or more in leaf axils on a peduncle 2–2.5 mm (0.079–0.098 in) long. The four sepals are egg-shaped, about 1 mm (0.039 in) long and wide and the four petals are about 2 mm (0.079 in) long. The stamens are hairy on their edges and the stigma is minute, scarcely wider than the style. Flowering mainly occurs from March to September and the fruit is a glabrous capsule about 3 mm (0.12 in) long and 1.5 mm (0.059 in) wide.
