Primula General Information:

Primula pubescen are considered to be one of the most carefree varieties of primrose. Smooth, leathery paddle-shaped rosettes of foliage hug the ground. Sturdy stems support rounded colorful clusters of fragrant flowers. Great for a rock garden or open woodland gardens.
