This was a very popular plant in the last century and much prized for exhibiting as it is to this day. But, alas, like so many good things it does not enjoy the popularity now as it deserves.

It is a plant both for the garden and Winter greenhouse cultivation. Belonging to the Primula family it bears Primrose like flowers of almost wax like appearance - as is the foliage.

The flowers are of most distinctive character having an outer ring or zone of strongly contrasting colour. The outer zone can be almost black, purple, plum red, blue, or yellow - with a contrasting white or gold centre to each individual flower. We have also seen green edged flowers, and silver too. The colour combinations are fascinating.

Completely winter hardy and, as we have found, totally rabbit proof!!

  • Flower March to May.
  • Grow to approximately 9" (23 cm) tall.
  • Thrive in partial shade and a rich soil.
  • Plant 15" (37.5 cm) apart.
