Boronia and Allied Genera Study Group

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 the Correa Study Group concentrates specifically on that genus.

The objectives of the group are to share information about the conditions necessary to grow particular species successfully.
