A beautiful and distinct primula with large round flower heads made up by scores of neat florets. Prefers a semi- shaded position but will do well in the border. Colours include snow-white, lavender-blue, lilac, deep blue and startling rich carmine. Ideal for early spring flowers, spring- flowering pot plants, bedding, and cool spots in the rock garden.

So easy 2011-04-23
These 'drumstick' primula are so easy and so reliable. In a formal border or in clumps in a cool spot near the pond, they're always there and always great to see. Adds a flush of early colour at a time when everything else is just getting started, and contrasts beautifully with the spring daffodils. Easy to germinate - just sow the seed and forget about them. Year on year they grow stronger and taller.
