For something very different, yet easy to grow and hardy, try Primula 'Francisca'. It has unique lime-green ruffled flowers, with classic yellow eye. Actually a Polyanthus hybrid, it bears clusters of longer stemmed flowers that sit above the leaves, reaching 15cm or so tall, which reputedly keep for up to 3 weeks in a vase. Flowering in March and April, they herald the start of Spring, and are very hardy and robust, and look great dotted around in borders, or en masse in pots and planters, their zingy lime green seemingly brightening other colours around them.
Supplied as a pack of 6 Jumbo plugs, they are big enough to plant straight out, or pot on to 9cm pots for 2 Months or so.
