This publication reports on the introduction of a suite of new selections into cultivation and progress with the propagation of Eriostemon australasius. Grafting is the predominant method of propagation discussed, but this report also covers trials involving seed germination, cuttings and tissue culture. Through the development of these techniques the rapid introduction of new varieties into cultivation has been achieved and varieties are in the process of being multiplied for distribution to growers involved in the project. Unfortunately, to date no long term intergeneric scion/ rootstock combination has been found.
