Primula chionantha
Product Details
A more unusual species of Primula with much more linear foliage than normal for primulas. The leaves are pale green, up to 2 cms wide, and with a strong yellowish meal to the undersides. The margins are completely smooth and the upper surface retains some of the fold marks which are present when the leaf unfurls. Flowers are borne on rigid stems to a height of 40 cms or so and are usually a nice white but sometimes a purple may appear. They are held in loose clusters and are pendulous. Nivales.
