Primula marginata produces several flowers to a stem from early spring, and these are a lavender-blue. The slow-developing evergreen rosettes of leathery, green leaves are covered with a mealy film and toothed or scalloped at their edges. Plants can grow in full sun, if there is some shade during midday, and are best planted in sharply drained, gritty soil. They can also be grown in pots, using a mixture of equal parts of John Innes No 2 compost, leaf-mould or peat, and grit. Be careful to avoid wetting the leaves when watering. Plants are found growing wild in The Alps.
