 Can anyone please tell me what this lovely plant is called. I grew it from a packet of free seeds and can't remember its name.

Salino

can't enlarge that one... someone else will be along shortly...

Salino

...oh it's Morina longifolia I think...and very nice too...

Are they primulas?  The leaves look like something else, though.  Nice plants.

Berghill

Agree with Salino, Morina longifolia.

Hello All ,

Thanks for taking the time to respond to my dilema. As soon as I read the name it was familiar. If anyone wants seed just let me know.

Again

ManyThanks  

Berghill

I could let you have a couple of pounds of it too!

Oh.......... but they are a treat for the eye's.

If you want to collect the seed, remove the whole flowering stems when the first seeds begin to fall and turn them up side down in a bucket and let the seed drop out. Wear gloves to remove the rest, the flowers are VERY prickly.

I just bought a little one of these last week.  I can't wait for it to look like that!
