Sieboldii plants - Barnhaven hybrids

Primula sieboldii are a beautiful Japanese primroses with a delicate charm. Barnhaven have been growing them since the 1950s and have developed their own garden worthy hardy strains through years of of selection and hand pollination. 

Primula sieboldii were some of Jared and Sylvia Sinclair's favourites ( Barnhaven owners in the UK) and most of the plants you see today are mainly the result of the years of hard work they put into the breeding programme. They prided themselves in developing strains whose flowers had better petal texture and substance with shorter, stronger stems than the Japanese counterparts. They focused on obtaining vigorous plants that would perform as well in the garden as they would in pots (which is how they were usually grown). In their 1976 catalogue they listed 36 different plant hybrids for sale. For more information have a look a this wonderful extract of Barnhaven's 1976 catalogue. In a bid to revive some of the old categories we have started to build up the stocks so we can offer them again as separate plant strains.

Please note: these plants are choice plants selected from our seed strains and there will be some variation in the plants you receive.
