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 '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 (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 alpicola DW09 ex. Tibet Primula alpicola DW09 ex. Tibet

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 aurantiaca Primula aurantiaca

An impeccable Scottish source provided this indispensable Candelabra Primrose.  Burnt orange flower buds open to orange flowers held in tiers on short, 12" dark stems which pair perfectly with the reddish midrib of the leaves.  Shorter than most Candelabra types, this space-saver can move to the path edge for easy viewing.  From high, moist meadows and seeps in Yunnan.

Primula auricula 'Old Mustard' Primula auricula 'Old Mustard'

Classic name for what must be an English selection - in the US with our bright yellow squeeze bottle mustard, it would have to be old mustard indeed.  Easy doer we got from that consummate English plantsman David Mason and he didn't steer us wrong.  Wide leaves backing stems with umbels of pub mustard flowers with a white eye.

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 - mixed colors Primula denticulata - mixed colors

Seedlings of this Drumstick Primrose from a red or "Rubin" flowered selection which will undoubtedly be all over the map in flower color as long as that map runs from point blue to point red since we cleverly have this growing near a blue denticulata. The older we get, the more we know and the less able to act on it apparently!

Primula florindae Keilor Hybrids Primula florindae Keilor Hybrids

No ignoring this Primrose in flower! Some Primula are wee subtle things with no greater effect than the sound of a distant flute teasing the edge of hearing. This Primula is a full triumphant symphony with you sitting in the orchestra pit. Big heads of many nodding orange/yellow fragrant flowers. Rich and moist.

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. 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 nivalis var. farinosa Primula nivalis var. farinosa

Not one you will easily find, this tough rarity hails from China's Xinjiang Province and neighboring Kazakhstan & Kyrgyzstan. High moist meadows are home sweet home for this blue-lavender drumstick Primula dusted in farina.  Sue brought this west from  VT over 20 years ago. Said it was tough!

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 polyneura Primula polyneura

A proven species for the garden, this Primula from China is in the Cortusoides section of the genus as evidenced by the broad, soft hairy leaves reminiscent of Primula kisoana but without the groundcover proclivities.  A good display of pink to rose-pink flowers on 12"-16" stems in late spring with sumptuous leaves in attendance if given light shade and a moist, organic-rich soil.

Primula secundiflora Primula secundiflora

Higher elevation Chinese species favoring a moist and rich with compost spot in part sun. This has long been a favorite species of ours with its pendant rose-purple flowers held on long pedicels heavily coated in white mealy farina and carried aloft on tall stems up to 2 to 3 feet. Sue grew this in northern VT.

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 '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 '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.

Primula wilsonii var. anisidora Primula wilsonii var. anisidora

Very cool Candelabra type Primrose with whorls of rich black cherry flowers.  Very distinctive and definitely eue-catching.  Loves a moist rich soil where it will gently self sow and frankly boogie until dawn.

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.

Primula x juliana 'Jay-Jay' Primula x juliana 'Jay-Jay'

One of the most intensely colored Wanda type Primroses out there.  This is all to seldom available and the rich color of the petals springing forth fromthe "Jack-in-the-Green" calyx sets it apart from all others.  Tolerates full sun if given enough water but looks better given some relief from afternoon sun.  Sold before as 'Lois Lutz'.
