Plant details

The drumstick primula blooms from mid-spring through to summer, with flower stems pushing up through bare soil. Team them with other primulas or violets in light woodland conditions, or group in pockets of humus-rich soil in the shade of rocks or other plants in a cool part of a rock garden. The white blooms of P. denticulata var. alba make a cheerful alternative to the purple flowers of the ordinary type.
