The PSSC  is a non-profit corporation formed and existing under the laws of the State of California. Our mission is to promote the cultivation, enjoyment and conservation of the plant family known as Palmae  to the botanists, and palms to everyone else.

Though most of its members are in Southern California, the PSSC has members worldwide. We have members in Northern California, Texas, Virginia, Florida, and Hawaii in the United States, plus Canada, Mexico, England and Australia.

Our members appreciate the shared joy of growing palms (as well as other plants) in gardens ranging from city lots to multi-acre estates. Our members include students, truck drivers, doctors, business people, and many more.
