Primula vulgaris Belarina Cobalt Blue

Primrose Cobalt

It’s the start of Primrose season and as much as we all love the traditional primroses, there are literally 400-500 species of primrose to explore. Let’s start with this one:

Belarina Cobalt Blue is in the common primrose category, but features deep sapphire blue double flowers that are sweetly fragrant. It blooms from early spring to summer. You can plant it in a garden border, but I’d keep it close by in a container to better enjoy both the blooms and the scent. This primrose is easy to grow in sun to part shade, is hardy to -20 degrees, and tops out at 6-18″ tall. This is a patented variety and costs a bit more, but definitely worth the price.
