Primula malacoides (Fairy Primnula, Fairy Primrose) have dainty clusters of flowers that are carried in spirals on an erect, hairy stem, well above the dense rosettes of attractive, mid-green foliage. The colours range from white, through pink, to magenta.
These are classic mixed border plants and are generally amongst the earlier flowers to bloom making them a very good start to the season.
Plant in a position that is sheltered from the hot afternoon sun and where they won't be too wet over winter. Plant into humus rich, moist, well drained soil or, in pots use a good quality, loam or peat based potting mix. Ensure there is good air flow around the plants.
Can grow up to 30cm H x 30cm W
