Newsletters

Regular newsletters are published several times per year. The newsletters provide a forum for Group members to discuss and record activities and experiences in cultivating and propagating Isopogon and Petrophile species, keeping up to date on scientific knowledge of the genus and reporting on field trips to various parts of Australia.

The following newsletters are available for download (Note: These 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.

Isopogon & Petrophile Plant Profiles

The two genera Isopogon and Petrophile are closely related and many are spectacular in flower. They also have a wide variety of leaf shapes, some being flat and wide, others being very narrow and divided into lobes.

Profiles of a number of Isopogon and Petrophile species have been incorporated into the ANPSA website.

Each profile includes a photograph and information on natural distribution, taxonomy, cultivation and propagation.
