Waratah and Flannel Flower Study Group

This Group was formed in 2011 with the aim of studying the cultivation and propagation of Waratahs (Telopea species) and Flannel Flowers (Actinotus helianthi), so that more species could be seen in gardens. The Study Group produced regular newsletters which document reports from members into cultivation issues in various climatic zones, propagation methods and natural occurrences of different species.

Although this Study Group is now closed, the Group's newsletters can be downloaded from the links below.

Newsletters

During the Group's period of operation, its newsletters documented reports from members into cultivation issues, propagation methods and natural occurrences of different species. These newsletters assisted in assessing the suitability of various species for cultivation in a range of climatic zones.

The website of the Waratah and Flannel Flower Study Group remains online and is an excellent resource for the various varieties and cultivars of these plants.

Further information on the characteristics and cultivation of waratahs and related plants is available from the following link.
