Species of Primrose
Rock jasmines has small entire or toothed leaves which form a basal rosette. Their dense cushions covered in white or pink flowers. There are roughly 110 species. Rock jasmines is a predominantly Arctic–alpine genus with many species in the Himalayas (where the genus originated), the mountains of central Asia, the Caucasus, and the southern and central European mountain systems, particularly the Alps and the Pyrenees.
Aegiceras is a genus of trees and shrubs from Southeast Asia, Malesia, Australia and the Pacific Islands.
There are about 100 species, the majority of which occur in Malesia, New Guinea, western Asia and the Pacific Islands. These plants are vines, shrubs, and trees up to 12 m tall.
The primroses (Primula) are a large and diverse group of flowering plants with a wide distribution. The "prim" in primroses is a reference to primus, the Latin word for "first", and thus to the fact that these flowers are often some of the first to bloom during springtime. Many primroses are cultivated ornamentally, and several species also provide important food sources for caterpillars and other insects.
Known for their showy berries, marlberry are often domesticated as houseplants or garden additions. However, they tend to escape cultivation, and even the wild species have come to be considered noxious weeds in several areas. Besides shading out native plants, the members of marlberry are also considered toxic to livestock.
The loosestrifes (Lysimachia) are a large group of flowering plants in the primrose family. Many have small but showy yellow flowers and are very pollinator-friendly – this has made them sought-after ornamentals, and today many garden cultivars are available. The genus' scientific name comes from an unusual piece of lore: an ancient king of the island of Sicily, named Lysimachus, was said to have calmed an enraged ox by feeding it loosestrifes.
Featherfoils is a genus of aquatic flowering plant in the family Primulaceae. It comprises two species. Featherfoils is native to Europe, western Asia and North America.
Embelia is a genus of climbing shrubs once placed in the family Myrsinaceae, which is now included in the Primulaceae. There are about 130 species which occur in tropical and subtropical areas across a wide range including Africa and Madagascar and from eastern Asia to the Pacific Islands as well as Australia.
Dwarf-primrose is a predominantly Arctic–alpine genus with many species in the Himalayas, the mountains of central Asia, the Caucasus, and the southern and central European mountain systems. Plants of this genus are sometimes known as rock jasmines or fairy candelabras and are widely cultivated for their dense cushions covered in white or pink flowers. There are roughly 110 species. This genus has small entire or toothed leaves which form a basal rosette.
Pomatosace is endemic to the Qinghai–Tibetan Plateau in China. Pomatosace is a biennial plant that grows from rosettes of basal leaves and divided into lobes along its length. The flowers are borne in umbels of 3–12 flowers on a stalk 1.02 to 16 cm tall. Each flower is white, with five petals fused into a tube.
The genus soldanella is flowering plants. The plant typically has a basal rosette of simple, orbicular leaves, with the flower stalks arising from the centre of the rosette, each stalk bearing 1-6 white to violet flowers. The genus soldanella includes about 15 species. Soldanella is native to European mountains.
Found throughout much of North America, shooting star are flowering plants that produce attractive nodding flowers borne on tall stems. In nature, they can be found in wet habitats such as moist meadows and valleys. Closely related to primroses (Primula spp.), these perennials are often cultivated as ornamental plants.
Alpine violet are a small group of low-growing, flowering plants in the primrose family. Their colorful, nodding flowers have made them sought after garden and indoor plants, and there are many ornamental cultivars. In some areas across their native range, in fact, populations have been depleted due to overcollecting.
Colicwood is a genus of flowering plants in the family Primulaceae. It is found nearly worldwide, primarily in tropical and subtropical areas. It contains about 200 species. The leathery, evergreen leaves are simple and alternate, with smooth or toothed margins and without stipules. The one-seeded, indehiscent fruit is a thin-fleshed globose drupe.
