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

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

Link -

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.

Thanks! Yes, leavas are with farina and I alwasy try not to wash it away when I water.

That's cool! But you've made me take interest in Stradbrook Dainty ;-)
