Primula elator - Oxslip
P. denticulata - Drumstick Primula
We were off to a Primula Workshop at the Agricultural College in Truro, NS. (I am not getting into a naming argument) sponsored by the Nova Scotia Rock Garden Society. Several of you who read this blog were there, and I think I can say that even I learned a few new things.
P. denticulata - The highly desirable white form
P. veris - Cowslip
P. frondosa - Birds Eye Primula
I did a count when I got home (people were asking just how many I did carry). I have 12 listed on the web site. I know I have several colours of Pruhonicensis and have added more doubles since I last updated my list (limited supply).
Primula japonica - Japanese Primula
We were given 10 different species of seed. I can't wait to try. Pam Eveleigh was our speaker and instructor for the day. She has a great website, Primula World, everything you need to know about primula and amazing photos that put mine to shame.
Primula auricula Francesca
This Francesca is one of my favourites. When it starts to bloom in May, the bloom continues to hold throughout the summer months.
Primula Sielboldii - Pink seed selection
Primula Sielboldii 'Yubisugata
Primula Sielboldii 'Sayogorama'
I love the Snowflake or Cherry Blossom Japanese (not to be confused with japonica) Primroses. Instead of forming clumps, they grow by runners (not evasive). The foliage is an apple green and they bloom later than most (June). The foliage will die back in the summer if it is too warm or not enough moisture. I have to get me some more of these.
There is P. Pruhoniciana although, but the images don't really match.
I forgot to quiz Pam about this.
Maybe some one out there has a suggestion.
