The Boronia and Allied Genera Study Group is one of a number of Study Groups within the Australian Native Plants Society (Australia), whose aims are to further knowledge about the cultivation, propagation and conservation of specific Australian plants. Members of all study groups are mainly keen amateurs with no formal horticultural or botanical knowledge, although a number of professionals in those fields also participate. The members' work is carried out in their own homes and gardens and in their own spare time.
This Group was formed with the aim of studying most of the genera within the Boronia family (tribe Boronieae of the family Rutaceae), including Boronia, Diplolaena, Leionema, Phebalium, Zieria and others. The genus Correa is also included, but a separate Study Group has been formed to concentrate specifically on that genus (the Correa Study Group - see below for contact details).
This group has been re-activated after a period in recess. The objectives of the group are to share information about the conditions necessary to grow particular species successfully. This will be done primarily through the bi-annual newsletter.
Membership is available to members of an ANPSA-affiliated Regional Society. If you are not a member of a Regional Society, please refer to the ANPSA Membership Page for further information on joining.
