Topic: Eremophila- 2022 Field trips to QLD, NT & WA.
For our May APS Mitchell meeting, Russell Wait returns to present on Eremophila, and will detail his 2022 field trips to Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia.
Russell is a member of APS Mitchell and will be familiar face to many of our members. He has maintained a specialist interest in Eremophila for decades; being a member of the Eremophila Study Group, the author of the book Growing Eremophila, and has established his specialist Eremophila nursery and garden at Romsey, where he holds the Botanical Collection of Eremophila for Plant Trust, which, he has held for more than 25 years. The collection of Eremophila varieties in the garden now numbers more than 400, and Russell adds to this regularly, having made field trips almost every year since 1995.
Russell has amassed a truly amazing depth of knowledge, so please do come along for what is guaranteed to be a thoroughly enjoyable evening hearing about Eremophila, and a few other species along the way.
Evening presentations are followed by the evening Door Prize plant raffle, flower specimen table discussion & conclude with time for supper & chat. Tea, coffee & supper provided.
