Primrose and cowslip are our native primula species which everyone knows as they are among the first ones to flower in early spring garden beds, as well as the first ones to appear on garden centre shelves in late winter. New and modern varieties are often hybrids, and to be honest, many of them are gorgeous and fascinating.

LITTLE QUEEN™ is a primrose series from the Gold-laced Group. LITTLE QUEEN™ Violet bears small but very handsome flowers with numerous dark violet petals with yellow centres and pale yellow to white margins. They appear in rich trusses atop only 10-15 cm tall stems. Their flowering period is as fascinating as in the GOLD NUGGET™ series. The first flowers appear in late March and show off in profusion for about two months. Then the number of flowers is reduced and the last ones wilt in late June. Hot summer means a break, but early September means back to work, fellas: plants repeat flowering until the first frost. The semi-evergreen or evergreen leaves are inversely lance-shaped, light to medium green, thick and form a firm rosette near the ground level.

Primrose, cowslip, and their hybrids do best in fertile, humus-rich, evenly moist soil of neutral to acidic pH in partial shade or filtered sun. They can cope with full sun only in beds with regular irrigation. They are hardy to about -29°C (USDA zone 5), and suitable for outdoor pots.
