Its not difficult to come by Long Acre plants have it, and I see a nice variegated form I have not seen before,the postage is the killer unles you buy other plants.

They are really lovely. It's the first time I have seen truly green flowers.

Homebird, it comes to mind there is a Primrose I think from memory called 'Francesca' that is a similar slightly lighter green.

I had a look in the Westonbirt GC for some of these yesterday, they didn't have any so I came home with 2 clems, 2 mahonia and a Pyracanthus!!!!

naughty but nice. Froze my hands and feet today planting them, well most of them!

Just googled primrose Franchesca and it is a green one with wavey petals. Memory is still spot on Brian........:o)

I think you started something here Brian, I thinks this is the prettiest little flower I've seen in ages. I haven't got much sahde though, only under a sycamore tree!!

Will have to find the perfect spot then!

I have had this plant for at least 10years.It has survived being moved and is just coming into flower. Always gets comments ....haven`t seen it very often. I love it.

I might have to order it! Do you think it would mind being under a sycamore tree? I am sure I can find just the right spot for it, it's just so pretty.

lulu Probably be OK
this is another odd one, the yellow is the flower and the green is the bract ,so you have the green long after the yellow flower is faded.
i wonder if the Pic indicates the size, each flower is about the size of a ten pence piece from memory(not larger)

They look quite small!

This was for sale at Totnes Brian. I agree about Franchesca it's a lovely Primula.

3 Mar, 2011

 

I saw this plant today (lots of them!) at Harlow Carr....couldn't buy any because I'm training it home, very miffed!!
