Slide programs with prepared scripts and videotapes are an excellent way to see and learn about many different species and cultivars of Primula. Many plant groups use them for educational programs. Both slides and tapes are available from the APS Slide Librarian for a nominal rental fee. Slides are sent to APS members ONLY

The following slide programs are available:

Auriculas. A slide program about those hardy members of the primrose family that originated in the Alps. Considerable interest has developed in the hybrid show auricula over the last few years. Show auriculas are featured in this program.

American Primrose Society Slide Program. Eighty slides of a variety of primroses in gardens and in flower arrangements, with a four-page narrative accompaniment.

Wild and Tame Primulas in Alaska. A video and slide program. The video is Tass Kelso's program "Yankee Doodle Dandy" on native American Primula from the "Primula Worldwide" symposium. The slides show native primula in Alaska, followed by many beautiful scenes of primroses in Alaskan gardens.

Tall, Mid-summer Blooming Primroses. The Proliferae and Sikkimensis Sections, including the fragrant Primula florindae and P. alpicola are featured.

Write to the Slide Librarian for a list of videotapes that are available. The tapes were made of presentations at the "Primula Worldwide" symposium in 1992.

Please send the date for which you need the program and a check or money order for $10 (slide programs) or $5 (video tapes) made payable to the APS Slide Library. Return the program within two weeks. Your postage cost will also be about $10 to return the material. If you live outside the United States, please write to Bridget Graham-Smith for postage and rental fees to your area.
