Introducing...

Primula

Botanical name: Primula

Whether you need to fill containers, plant up a streamside, wildflower area or border, primulas dazzle with dolly mixture shades from spring through to late summer. They are all hardy perennials, with a few needing specialist growing conditions, but most are robust and many are scented.
