Hibbertia Study Group

This Group was initially formed with the aim of studying the cultivation and propagation of Australian species of Hibbertia The genus comprises over 100 species, most of which occur naturally in Australia but others occur in New Guinea, New Caledonia, Fiji and Madagascar. They are generally small to medium shrubs with some prostate forms and a few with a climbing habit of growth.

The Group commenced in 1977 but is believed to have closed in the mid 1990s. Available newsletters published by the group can be downloaded from the links below. It is not known if any subsequent newsletters were produced.
