Primula glaucescens



Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
A choice Primula endemic to the southern Italian Alps where it grows in rich humus-filled crevices in limestone rocks. These are divisions from the plant Sue brought from Vermont decades ago.  These make bold clumps of distinctive sharply pointed foliage with short-stemmed clusters of pink-red flowers. This likes a moisture retentive well drained soil and has been easy and durable for us in our standard mix.
