Primula 2024
« on: March 01, 2024, 08:38:58 PM »
Since many years I enjoy the profuse flowering of Primula Joan Hughes in early spring.
Raised this dwarf and floriferous Primula marginata from wild seed,
collected at Mt.Cheiron in the Maritme Alps.

Winter growing Primula palinuri from Southern Italy is hardy without any overhead protetion
in our microclimate near the house since more than 20years. ( Marc, sorry no seeds last year)

Your seedling from wild collected seed is exceptional! The fact that it is thrum-eyed and dwarf adds to it's beauty. For those that don't know, most Primula marginata are pin-eyed.

Marc and Peterk, many thanks for your kind comments.
Now many Primulas give  a wonderful show in the garden and the meadow.

Most admirable flowers. :D
Some of the smaller Primulas seem to grow quite comfortable on hydroponic islands. Only mice were nibbling on some P.mistassinica.

More Primulas:

I have what I believe to be P. Broadwell Milkmaid and a creamier/yellower form which came from an AGS member some years back, and which I think shares the name. Both now over in this very warm spring. Was one a sport of the other, or the same hyb. cross? Both are vigorous growers; the white more so than the cream for me.

I am vacationing around the western part of Himalayas for the last 9 days with my husband. The weather is not cooperating well. It is raining off and on. Somehow managed to go for few hikes in between. Today is one of those days. Today visited the Solang valley that is closer to Rohtang pass which is around 13f feet high. The Solang valley is around 8.5K feet high. The pass is closed because of the heavy snow fall. On the way I have seen lots of Primula denticulata.Here are some pictures

Always great to see plants in their wild habitat Kris!
I am sorry the weather hasn't been on your side, especially considering the long trip.

Agreed :D :D
The frostperiod after the early warm spring, caused Primula mistassinica to flower again.
Just harvested  seed from early April.
