Botanical - Primula

"To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves."


Botanical - Primula 'Gold Lace'

This polyanthus primula has unusual golden-eyed flowers with black petals with gold margins. Plants enjoy a position in moist, slightly acid soil in partial shade. However they can tolerate full sun if the soil remains moist at all times, but prefer slightly acidic soil in partial shade.

This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and/or birds. Requires consistently moist soil and should not be allowed to dry out between waterings.
