Welcome to the Grevillea Study Group Website.
The Grevillea 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 Grevillea. The group has been particularly active over the past 20 years and includes among its members some of the most knowledgeable people on the botany, ecology and cultivation of grevilleas. Two of its members, Peter Olde (the Group leader) and Neil Marriott are responsible for the superb three-volume Grevillea Book which contains details of all species (including photographs, diagrams, distribution information) as well as an account of the history of discovery and cultivation of the genus and information on propagation and cultivation.
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 but the Group also undertakes regular field excursions. The members of the group have introduced many species into cultivation and established living collections at several locations.
The group produces three comprehensive newsletters per year and, since the inception of the group, over 100 newsletters have been issued. These document reports from members into cultivation issues in various climatic zones, propagation methods and natural occurrences of different species. Past issues of the newsletters can be downloaded from this site (see the link below).
The Group also maintains an extensive seed bank. Seed is available to members free or at a nominal cost.
If you are interested in the cultivation, propagation, conservation and appreciation of Australia's native flora, especially grevilleas, 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.

Profiles of over 50 Grevillea species and cultivars have been incorporated into the Grevillea section of the main ANPSA website. Each profile includes a photograph and information on natural distribution, taxonomy, cultivation and propagation. ANPSA's Grevillea pages also cover the characteristics, cultivation and propagation of grevilleas generally, and include references to other Grevillea resources.
Regular newsletters are published several times per year to record activities and experiences of Group members in cultivating banksias, keeping up to date on scientific knowledge of the genus and reporting on field trips to various parts of Australia.
The newsletters are available for download as is an Index to Issues 1 to 100.
The Grevillea Study Group currently recognises 377 species and 99 subspecies.
A comprehensive bibliography of publications dealing with grevilleas is available. Updated April 2015.
A small compilation of books, journals and internet resources on Grevillea.
