Title: Primula auricula and Auricula hybrids
Post by: Palustris on April 17, 2018, 01:52:11 PM
Rather pleased with this seedling. Could be better if it was 'pin eyed' rather than 'thrum' thogugh.[attachimg=1]

Rotated the pix for you, Christine. Your Auricula theatre must be looking great with these  gems on display.

Thanks Maggi, some were a bit blurred so Iíve been out again and done them, think they are a bit better now.  Iíll take a pic of the theatre...

What I find interesting is that I have lots of very similar one to those which I have grown from seed from the Auricula society. I should go and take some pictures.

Nice collection Christine, takes me back 20 years or more when I grew nothing else.

Thanks David. They have some of the most exquisite flowers, they fascinate me.

Yes, yes Maggi, and they bloom for quite a long time too... still figuring out how to grow them to show standard though.

"Official " auricula shows are terribly strict, aren't they? Only one  rosette, single stem etc??   Sounds tricky to me- we are normally wanting  multi-headed plants  all the time!

Very nice, Chris.

Blush Baby is charming.

Maxine Grice of Avon Bulbs is busy  at the RHS Malvern Show - she has shared these photos from one of the  auricula nurseries at the  Show  .... pretty, aren't they?

What is really nice is to realise that I have most of those colours (of the single ones) grown from seed. I even have a few of the double ones too!

Lovely display there, wonder how they last as cut flowers like that?
Yes, Maggi, those shows are very strict, but so are ours, the rules make my head spin!  Iíve only been to a couple of those auricula shows (and there are categories for other primula species as well) but they take no notice at all of the state of the foliage in judging them, which quite surprised me.  How to grow them to their standards beats me though, Iím happy with what I have ...

My problem now is that I am not allowed to buy any more of the named ones. She who is always right thinks I have enough, just because the theatre is full.
