We select, develop, and propagate a diverse range of native and exotic plants to suit the differing requirements of the ornamental, landscape, revegetation, and farming industries.
Vitroflora is managed by Dr David Willyams a specialist in tissue culture, propagation, revegetation, and horticultural science.
Many of Australia’s native plants have huge potential in ornamental horticulture and revegetation, but have never been developed or domesticated, as many require specialised propagation techniques to successfully establish them commercially.
Vitroflora also aims to develop new varieties of plants that can be protected and released to local or international markets to use for cut flowers and foliage, as indoor and garden plants, and for outdoor landscaping.
