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 16 inches or so and are purple-magenta in colour. These are held in loose clusters and are pendulous. Nivales.
