The drumstick primula begins flowering from mid-spring through to summer, with flower stems pushing up through bare soil. As long as they are grown somewhere sheltered from late frosts, the flowers open out into traditional pink or purple spheres on sticks. Plants continue flowering for a couple of months, with later flowers coinciding with the neat mini shuttlecock-shaped rosettes of foliage. 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. They are found growing wild in moist alpine regions from Afghanistan to China. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
