Welcome to the Hakea Study Group Website.
The Hakea 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 Hakea. The Study Group has been in operation for about 18 years documenting reports from members into cultivation issues, propagation methods and natural occurrences of different species. These reports have assisted in assessing the suitability of various species for cultivation in a range of climatic zones.
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 issues regular newsletters 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 hakeas, 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 hakeas, 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 Hakea.
Profiles of a number of Hakea species and cultivars have been incorporated into the Hakea section of the main ANPSA website. Each profile includes a photograph and concise information on:
ANPSA's Hakea pages also cover the characteristics, cultivation and propagation of hakeas generally, and include references to other Hakea resources.
