I've not had any problems, I think any toxins remaining would be in minute quantities after mixing with green waste and composting. Don't some inks derive from plant products? If you were worried, you could just not use it where edible crops are grown.

Bare roots are usually cheaper, good for a hedge. A standard is a bush grown on a long stem, decorative and good for a pot. So it depends what you want them for.

Nutcutlet is right, the native primrose is the one to get, and the most beautiful as well. My favourite flower!
