Primula marginata dwarf form

By Naoto


Primula marginata dwarf form (Primula marginata (Marginate Primrose))

Purchased @ Wisley Plant Centre a couple of years ago - nearly killed once (due to overwatering) but resurrected.

Water it with rainwater and feed it with Tomorite 2 - 3 times a year.

Nice looks similar to a primula marginata x allionii cross I did in the late 1970s called Stradbrook Dainty.
was yours sold as a marginata species I know there are small ones.
How large is the pot i can gauge the size from that

@Thrupennybit
Thanks!

Yes.....I bought this at Wisley Plant Centre and the label clearly says "P.marginata dwarf form".

The size of the flowers is almost half of hybrid primula (i.e. Clarence Elliott) and I cultivate this in 15cm (6-inch) diameter pot.
