Calytrix Study Group

This Group was formed with the aim of studying the cultivation and propagation of the genus Calytrix, a member of the large myrtle family of plants (the Myrtaceae), so that more species could be seen in gardens. 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 and missing issues will be added if copies are located. It is not known if any newsletters were published after Issue 17.

Further information on the characteristics and cultivation of Calytrix is available from the Chamelaucium and Relatives section of the website (link below).
