The speaker on 25 November at the meeting of the Parramatta and Hills Group of the Australian Plants Society will be Lyndal Thorburn, and she will be speaking about “An Eremophila for every garden”.
Although Eremophilas (Umu Bushes) grow naturally in the dryer parts of Australia, they can make stunning additions to your garden. Lyndal will provide tips on growing and caring for Eremophilas, particularly in the wetter Sydney region.
Lyndal Thorburn has been leader of the Eremophila Study Group since 2015. A scientist by training but not by profession, she has kept her interest in biology alive through long term involvement with the Australian Plants Society Canberra and participation in many Citizen Science groups.
She has grown over 100 varieties of Eremophilas in her rather shady Queanbeyan garden, and has been delighted to discover that many in the genus are frost hardy and don’t need sun all day.
