Flat blooming, slender petalled thrum. Flushed pink flowers, darker towards the centre of the flower. Sourced from Japan by Martin Nest Nurseries, the name translates as “Morning Sun on the Beach”. A very nice sakurasu, which looks very good in the evening light.
Flat blooming, slender notch petalled pin. Pink mottled petals, with deep pink bars on petal edges and deep pink reverse. Raised in USA. One of the more difficult Primula sieboldii cultivars.
Wave blooming, overlap petalled thrum. Blue shaded white flowers with dark blue reverse. Tends to be lower growing with tight flower heads. Raised by Julian Sutton in Devon and named after the Dartmoor river. A very attractive, semi-compact Primula sieboldii cultivar.
Flat blooming, sleder petalled pin. Deeply cut narrow pure white flowers with occasional streaks of green. This Primula sieboldii cultivar dates back to the late 1700s of the Edo Period in Japan and is prized for the green variegation on the petals. The name translates as “Flute of Green Leaves”.
Wave blooming, cherry blossom petalled pin. White flowers with pale blue suffusion and pale blue reverse. Like many of the ‘blue’ cultivars, this tends to flower later in the season. We do not know the origins of this very pretty compact sakurasu cultivar, which we sourced in 2005.
