Welcome to the Correa Study Group Website.
The Correa Study Group is one of a number of Study Groups within the Australian Native Plants Society (Australia). Our aim is to further knowledge about the cultivation, propagation and conservation of members of the genus Correa. Members of the Group are mainly keen amateurs with no formal horticultural or botanical knowledge, although a number of professionals in those fields also participate. As in all study groups, the members' work is mainly carried out in their own homes and gardens and in their own spare time.
Correa is one of the most widely cultivated members of the Family Rutaceae but it is also one of the most confused. Although there are only 11 species, there are a large number of cultivars in existence and the naming and origins of many of these are invalid. There are a number of identical plants being cultivated under different names and other cultivars are being cultivated under names which are appropriate to completely different forms. One aim of this Group is to address this confusion by growing and comparing as many of the existing species and cultivars as possible.
The Group issues regular newsletters documenting cultivation reports from members, providing botanical keys to the species, organising and reporting on field excursions and describing propagation methods, successes and failures. Past issues of the newsletters can be downloaded from this site (see the link below).
If you are interested in the cultivation, propagation, conservation and appreciation of Australia's native flora, especially correas, why not consider joining and helping to promote these beautiful plants more widely.
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.

Regular newsletters are published several times per year to record activities and experiences of Group members in cultivating correas, keeping up to date on scientific knowledge of the genus and reporting on field trips to various parts of Australia.
Newsletters published over recent years are available for download.
A small compilation of books, journals and internet resources on Correa.
Profiles of a number of Correa species and cultivars have been incorporated into the Boronia Family section of the main ANPSA website. Each profile includes a photograph and information on:
ANPSA's Boronia Family pages also cover the characteristics, cultivation and propagation of correas generally, and include references to other Correa resources.
