My word, my late mother would have gone crazy for that Belarina Cobalt Blue....  that was her favourite flower colour in primulas.... though she only had single polyanthus in a similar shade.

Incredibly, I picked up the Belarina Cobalt Blue in a local garden centre a couple of months ago. I have some very good double blues but this one is the purest colour. Seems to be increasing well too. I also chose one (from half a doz different) called 'Pink Ice,' slightly creamy as it opened but aging soon to a delicate, candy-floss pink.
