Primula denticulata ‘Blue Selection’
at Digging Dog

Blue Drumstick Primrose

Primula denticulata Blue Selection

March–April.

Primula

Primrose

Derived from the Italian primaverola, the name of this genus pays homage to the way its early blossoms welcome the spring. Many of the more than 400 species are at home in the moist climates of England, New Zealand and the Pacific Coast. The species we offer are cold hardy but can do well in warmer climates so long as they have ample soil moisture. Lovely in drifts, try planting them in a woodland garden, by a pond or streamside.

If a fairy majorette was out to beat the band, she’d be carrying the charming orbs of this Primula as her baton. Formed from plentiful, dark blue and golden-eyed, funnel-shaped florets, the dense 2 in. globes rest on stout stems above a textured, leafy whorl. A winner for the shady border, plant a drift of this long-lived selection with Euphorbia ‘Fern Cottage’ behind.

Size: 12" high x 9"–12" wide; hardy to zone 5.
