NY114 - Western NSW Flora as Flowering Pot Plants

This objective of this project was to screen plants from Western NSW to identify those suitable as indoor flowering potted plants and to commence commercial development of those plants. A large collection from the wild had previously been made and this was added to during the course of the project. About 80 of these showed particular promise and were selected for further development and horticultural evaluation. In addition improved methods of propagation and culture were developed. A plant improvement program, utilizing collect material has also been commenced
