Primula 'Lady Greer' AGM Primula 'Lady Greer' AGM

An old Irish cultivar sporting an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.  Small creamy flowers getting a pink tinge with age are perfectly paired with the tidy small green leaves.  A dense clumper that puts on a good show, make that a jolly good show, old boy, in early spring.

Primula allionii 'Wharfedale Ling" Primula allionii 'Wharfedale Ling'

A treasure for the rock garden or trough, this little jewel is native to Europe growing in crevices on rock cliffs.  It likes good drainage but not too dry so add some fine gravel or sand to your planting mix.  We've found it to be quite easy growing it in full sun and it often reblooms later in the year.

Primula apennina Primula apennina

A Primula species endemic to isolated pockets along 45km at the crest of the Northern Apennines between Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna.  A distinct species with magenta-pink flowers set off by a white eye.  This has been a good plant for us and quite hardy.  Not one likely to be found at Home Despot.

Primula florindae Primula florindae

There is no ignoring this Primrose when it is in flower.  Some Primula are wee subtle things with no greater effect than the sound of a distant flute teasing the edge of hearing.  Primula florindae is a full triumphant symphony with you sitting in the orchestra pit.  Big heads of many nodding yellow or orange shaded fragrant flowers.

Primula glaucescens Primula glaucescens

A choice Primula from the Italian Alps that is seldom offered for sale.  I know we hate to part with any.  These make bold clumps of distinctive foliage with short-stemmed clusters of dark lavender flowers.  This likes a moisture retentive well drained soil.

Primula kisoana Primula kisoana

A fun Primrose that when settled in and enjoying a rich crumbly soil can really make a nice patch.  This spreads by underground rhizomes and is a good colonizer.  Some plants when you say colonizer it rightly sounds an alarm much like a submarine klaxon on an emergency dive.  Not so this.  Rich tomato pink flowers above season interest-extending felty foliage.

Primula kisoana var. alba Primula kisoana var. alba

A white flowered version of the normally pink Japanese which we never have enough of as it sells immediately.  One of our customers tells us how it well does under the trees in dry shade and we grow it in the dry end of our shade garden.  This has large fuzzy leaves and spreads rapidly by rhizomes if moist or slowly if dry or just right if in-between.

Primula marginata 'Kesselring's Variety' Primula marginata 'Kesselring's Variety'

We originally received this gem from Rick Lupp who grows all marginata's so well.  This is a compact very free-flowering selection with rich mauve or purplish flowers.  This grow naturally in cliffs in the Maritime Alps but does well in the open garden given a gritty soil and part sun.

Primula marginata 'Linda Pope' Primula marginata 'Linda Pope'

European primrose species found in the wild growing in limestone mountains and favoring north-facing vertical crevices.  Good luck growing this, right?  Not so - it has been very easy and tolerant of, we're sorry to report, some surprising amount of neglect.  Nice blue flowers over leaves edged in farina.  This will make small 6" trunks in time.  Zone 4-8.

Very unusual Primrose collected by Steve Hootman in Sichuan China.  This has short-stemmed light pink flowers and spreads by strawberry-like runners to make a nice carpet.  Imagine - a Primrose groundcover!

Primula sp. CDHM 14537 Primula poissonii CDHM 14537

A candelabra type which we found growing in a high boggy meadow in Sichuan in October 2012 where it mingled with other Primula species, Gentiana sino-ornata in bloom and hummocks of dwarf Rhododendron.  This is a good form of the species with large dark magenta flowers in tiers.

Primula septemloba Primula septemloba

Safe to say this is rare.  From the higher elevations in Yunnan, Sichuan and Tibet comes this collector's primrose.  This has proven very easy in our shade garden where the rounded sort of palmate leaves form a very dense canopy over the short creeping rhizomes.  Purple rose flowers are just what we wanted to see.

Primula sieboldii 'Little Girls' Petals' Primula sieboldii 'Little Girls' Petals'

A selection by Paul Held of Michigan who was the foremost Primula sieboldii collector in the US so if he thought this worthy of naming then you can be assured that this is a good plant.  Soft  lavender flowers of good size with a pale center on the open face of the flower.  This is an easy Japanese species.

Primula sieboldii 'Musashino' Primula sieboldii 'Musashino'

Robust Japenese selection of this revered Primrose species with nearly blowsy pink flowers on sturdy stems.  This presents some serious flower power for the species and always puts on a good show.  The species as a rule can take more dry than most Primula opting for dormancy.

Primula sieboldii - Red Form Primula sieboldii - Red Form

Japanese species and in this selection simply known as 'Red Form' for it's dark pink sizable flowers.  This is what red is called when a species really doesn't have a true red but everyone sooo wants there to be a good red. Still a top-tier plant making nice clumps and long-lived.

Primula x forsteri 'Bileckii' Primula x forsteri 'Bileckii'

This is a dandy cross between Primula minima which is really tricky to grow and P. hirsuta which is easy.  The result has the charm of minima without the temperament and the ease of cultivation which hirsuta offers.  Great foliage and vibrant reddish flowers.  Good drainage and morning sun.
