    Nicknamed the drumstick primrose, this variety sends up vibrant purple-mauve pompoms of flowers from mid spring to early summer above spoon-shaped, bright green leaves. This primula looks great planted in a partially shady garden border with white flowers, or among ferns. The flowers provide a striking colour contrast and associate well with other spring-flowering bulbs.

  • Garden care: Divide large clumps after the plant has flowered, preferably during a wet spell.
