Primula Juliana

The last of our miniature garden primroses is really the first; first in bloom (these pictures were taken last March) and first in my heart.This really is a group of hybrids, which go by various names... juliana, juliae, pruhonica, Wanda... it is confusing, because at first you think you are dealing with a distinct species, but they are mostly hybrids. We grow quite a variety of them, and later this spring I hope to write more in depth about them, with more pictures, and to outline what I understand about the classification of them. For now, I will just say they are tiny to small early bloomers, rock hardy for the most part, and are covered with flowers in breathtaking colors. Posted by Picasa
