Verticordia Study Group

Verticordia is one of the most horticulturally desirable members of the Australian Flora but it is also one of the more difficult to tame for cultivation. The Verticordia Study Group was formed with the aim of studying the cultivation and propagation of the genus so that more species could be seen in gardens. Although now closed, the Group produced regular informative newsletters, many of which can be downloaded from the links below.

The Group's newsletters document reports from members into cultivation issues, propagation methods and natural occurrences of different species. The following newsletters are available for downloading. Missing newsletters will be added here if they become available. It is not known if any newsletters were published after Issue 48.

Further information on the characteristics and cultivation of Verticordia is available from the Chamelaucium and Relatives section of the website (link below).
