Slightly scented lavender flowers above rosettes of leathery serrated leaves.
One of the earliest Primula species to bloom in the spring. This species was described in 1792 from garden grown plants collected from the wild in 1781. In the wild, it almost always grows on limestone, on mossy or grassy ledges on steep cliffs, boulders or slopes or from crevices, usually on the north side.
All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
