Welcome to the Eucalyptus Study Group Website.

The Eucalyptus 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 the eucalypts (the genera Eucalyptus, Corymbia and Angophora). 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.

The group aims to keep abreast of all matters affecting the eucalypts, including taxonomy, propagation, cultivation, pests and diseases, hybridisation and ecology.

Regular newsletters are published documenting cultivation reports from members, 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 eucalypts, 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.

Plant Profiles

Profiles of a number of Eucalyptus, Corymbia and Angophora species have been incorporated into the eucalypt section of the main ANPSA website. Each profile includes a photograph and information on:

  • Natural distribution
  • Taxonomy
  • Cultivation
  • Propagation

ANPSA's Eucalypt pages also cover the characteristics, cultivation and propagation of eucalypts generally, and include references to other relevant resources.
