Welcome to The American Primrose Society

…bringing Primula enthusiasts together since 1941.

The full name of our organization is ‘The American Primrose, Primula, and Auricula Society’, commonly referred to as ‘The American Primrose Society’.

We are an international group of Primula enthusiasts who live not only in North America but also in many other parts of the world. Some members are academics with special expertise in the genus Primula; some are collectors and hybridizers; others are general gardeners who are fascinated by the wide variety of primulas available.  With more than 450 species ranging from tiny European alpines to the stately ‘candelabras’ of Asia, there is a Primula for everyone.

We have information available here for every level of gardener. And, of course, if you’d like to Join Us, we’d be happy to have you.
