Auriculas Summary


Auriculas: Their Care and Cultivation by Brenda Hyatt

Auriculas are currently enjoying a huge revival, and interest in their cultivation and appreciation of their delicacy and charm are increasing. These hardy plants - for despite their appearance, auriculas do not appreciate warm, sunny conditions - are problably derived from "primula pubescens", and they are thought to have been introduced to Britain by refugees from Europe in the late 16th century. During the 18th and 19th centuries their popularity reached a peak as florists societies throughout the country developed and refined new varieties. Then interest waned, and it was not until the 1950s that a revival occurred. Now, auricalus are keenly sought for cultivation in gardens everywhere, the diversity of form being as great an attraction as the colours. This guide provides advice on cultivation, propagation and breeding and dealing with pests and diseases. There is also a section of guidelines for exhibitors.
