Primula hose-in-hose purple strain

A Barnhaven strain of purple and mauve hose-in-hose primula. From dark purple to light mauve, polyanthus and acaulis forms. In the hose-in-hose form the calyx is turned into petals of another flower - so it looks as if one flower is nestling inside another. Much sought after and collectible plants, they also make tough garden plants. 

Height: 15 - 20cm. 

Flowering period: Late winter – mid-spring.

Culture: borders or pots in partial shade.

Soil: rich, damp soil.
