After 28 years with the Botanic Gardens Trust, botanist Joy Everett retires tomorrow. To honour the occasion Joy planted a Wollemi Pine just outside Victoria Lodge today - the very first Wollemi Pine to be planted in the Domain.

Joy is well known for her work on the daisies (Asteraceae) and grasses (Poaceae), and various other plant families. She also edited the Trust's scientific journal for plant systematics and taxonomy, Telopea, for a number of few years.
