Introduction

The objectives and purposes of ACRA are:

  • to record the names of all cultivars of Australian native plants and hybrids between Australian and exotic plants (excluding Rhododendron and Orchidaceae)
  • to encourage the horticultural development of the Australian flora
  • to assess and describe cultivars submitted for registration
  • to cooperate with other organisations and individuals engaged in activities compatible with these objectives
  • to maintain a register, together with correspondence files, herbarium specimens, photographic collections and any other necessary information on cultivars or groups defined above
  • to publish information on Australian plant cultivars ( access this information via the list )
