  • Product Code: 548gp


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.
