Hakea Study Group FormSignup form for the Hakea Study Group that sends a notification to the Study Group leader.
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.
Past newsletters are provided as an archive. (Note: Newsletters are in pdf format and will require a PDF Reader to view them. Free readers include Foxit Reader and Adobe Acrobat Reader).
More recent Newsletters will be uploaded about a year in arrears, so that current Study Group members have privileged access to current content.
Hakea Plant Profiles
Profiles of a number of Hakea species have been incorporated into the Hakea section of the ANPSA website, which can be found under ‘Plant Guides > Common Plant Genera and Families’. Each profile includes a photograph and information on natural distribution, taxonomy, cultivation and propagation.
The Hakea section of the website also covers the characteristics, cultivation and propagation of banksias generally, and include references to other relevant resources.
