Calothamnus and Allied Genera Study Group

This Group was formed originally with the aim of studying the cultivation and propagation of the genus Calothamnus, a member of the large myrtle family of plants (the Myrtaceae), so that more species could be seen in gardens. With the closure of the Beaufortia and Allied Genera Study Group, the Group's interest was expanded in early 1990 to include related genera such as Beaufortia, Eremaea and Regelia.

Although the Group is now closed, a number of its newsletters are available for download from the links below.

The Study Group's newsletters document reports from members into cultivation issues, propagation methods and natural occurrences of different species. The following newsletters are available for download - earlier issues will be added if copies are located. It is not known if any newsletters were published after Issue 23.

Further information on the characteristics and cultivation of Calothamnus is available from the 'Leptospermum and Relatives' section of the website (link below).
