Androsace lanuginosa 'Leichtlinii' Androsace lanuginosa 'Leichtlinii'

An easy plant for the rock garden or well-drained front of the border.  This doesn't require much beyond the basics and yet on this meager fare of occasional watering it will bloom most of the summer and well into fall.  To ask for more would be simply bad form.  Mat forming with gray-green lightly hirsute rosettes with umbells of white flowers with small green turning pink eyes.

Primula 'Aire Mist' Primula 'Aire Mist'

A Primula allionii hybrid which we received from the plant duo of Mason & Grimm at Hedgerows Nursery. The allionii hybrids are a tough lot and excellent for troughs, rock gardens and container culture. Small cushions of foliage on well-grown plants can get totally obscured by white flowers with a tiny cream eye. This is a good gateway hybrid to the many allionii crosses out there.

Primula (Dodecatheon) jeffreyi  NNS collection Primula (Dodecatheon) jeffreyi NNS collection

Western Shooting Star. A pleasing western wildflower California to Alaska that one can't help but enjoy with its showy pinkish flowers with its strongly backswept petals. Likes it moist in spring and goes summer dormant when it gets drier.  The taxonomic move of Dodecatheon to Primula nearly made us give up on plants and take up studying something stable and predictable like Constitutional checks and balances.

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.

A collection by our friend Daniel Winkler of this Tibetan alpine meadow and streamside species found growing up to nearly 15000'  .  Nodding yellow flowers on a tall stem stem held well above the foliage, this has proved a durable species here at the nursery carrying on year after year while more effete species quietly

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 auricula hybrid - "Double Cream" Primula auricula hybrid - "Double Cream"

As the descriptive implies, this auricula came to us with double flowers that are a creamy white.  Many of the Primula in our area can be traced back to the late Herb Dickson at Chehalis Rare Plants and this likely carries the genetic memory of this specialty plant nursery from the 60's and 70's.  This has been a survivor for us.

Primula denticulata - Blue Form Primula denticulata - Blue Form

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 japonica Primula japonica

Candelabra Primrose. Staggering floral display of tiered rings of flowers arrayed up sturdy stems from 18" to 30" when living large in rich, moist soil and all of this above broadly sumptuous and lightly rumpled foliage. A swash of these always leaves one a bit short of breath with its beauty.  Yours will be either vibrant fuchsia or tomato terracotta - a surprise awaits down the line.

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.

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.

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 'Ice Princess' Primula sieboldii 'Ice Princess'

Broad petals with an intricate dendritic margin that provides a bit of wonderment.  The backs of the petals are a gentle amethyst which bleeds through to the white face of the petals infusing them with the color of sun-tinted old glass.  This is easy to accommodate in the garden as it is not coldly distant with a petulant haughtiness but it does like to be admired which will come easily.

Primula sieboldii 'Lacy Lady' Primula sieboldii 'Lacy Lady'

This Lady has a lot to offer and the image of a Madam in a high-end Victorian brothel keeps intruding when attempting to describe those offerings.  Courting disaster on the precipice of good taste, exuding confidence without apology, this selection invites anthropomorphism like few others.  The rich pink of passion on the reverse, a chaste white on the front with pink-tinged petal margins awakening.

Primula sieboldii 'Late Snow' Primula sieboldii 'Late Snow'

The pure white flowers are shaped like Amazon took its frightening AI algorithm capabilities and looked into everyone's hearts and minds to find the universal constant of snowflake conceptualization and then went to its secret biological modification lab and 3-D printed the snowflake gene and went all CRISPR gene splicing happy to make the perfect primrose for the snowflake market. Putting on my tinfoil hat now.

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 'Peach Blossom' Primula sieboldii 'Peach Blossom'

Another excellent selection shared with us by Jan and Marty, this has flowers with a reverse of rich purplish-pink and faces of lavender pink that are washed in white.  Each petal is gently heart-shaped which is very fortunate when one considers the possibilities offered by other organs. And we will stop right there.

Primula sieboldii 'Rock Candy' Primula sieboldii 'Rock Candy'

Pink flowers with a hint of violet that elevates this on the societal color palette preventing it from slipping down to the campy plastic flamingo. The broad petals have a small, white distant star for an eye and are nearly imperceptibly dusted with what could be airborne suspended particles of confectioners sugar lightly settling to rest. In our house, it would be a delicate white tracery as if from floating dog hair.

Primula sieboldii 'Smooch' Primula sieboldii 'Smooch'

Large flowers with appropriate heart-shaped petals that are light pink on the backside and pale white-pink on the front.  This is a comfortable plant with no surprises and you will have a sense of easy familiarity each spring when this flowers.  No drama, no challenging colors, just a solid beauty of the sort that if it could smooch, it would.
