Welcome to the home page for the Australian Native Plants Society (Australia) - formerly known as the Association of Societies for Growing Australian Plants (ASGAP). We have been growing and promoting Australian Plants since 1957.
If you are interested in the cultivation, propagation, conservation and appreciation of Australia's native flora, we hope you will spend some time here.
The membership of the Society consists of people of all ages with broad and varying interests and backgrounds.
Whether you are interested in learning about the growing, conservation or simple appreciation of the unique Australian flora, or you would just like to support the Society's ongoing activities, you will find many advantages in becoming a member.
Interested in propagation, cultivation and conservation of Australia's flora? Our extensive guides cover a wide range of topics such as:
Our online magazine Australian Plants online features several hundred articles reproduced from the Society's newsletters. These cover all aspects of propagating and growing Australian native plants.
Every two years ANPSA hosts a Conference and Seminar program featuring lectures, workshops and field trips highlighting the diversity of Australia's native flora. Associated with the Conference are Pre- and Post-Conference Tours which allow participants to experience the diversity of the local flora.
In 2015, the Conference will be held in Australia's National Capital, Canberra.
Theme: Bush Capital / Garden City
Dates: Sunday 15 November through Friday 20 November 2015
Venue:Australian Institute of Sport, Canberra
We encourage you to plan to attend ANPSA 2015 Conference/Seminar and enjoy the hospitality of members of the Australian Native Plants Society (Canberra). Registration is now open via the Conference Website.
Our photo gallery includes over 700 images of Australian native plants - from Abelmoschus to Zieria! - with more being added regularly.
All of the photos are accompanied by concise information on natural distribution, propagation, and cultivation.
The following definition has been adopted by ANPSA:
