This is another lovely pixel takeaway from the local garden centre, this time in a beautiful red colour. These double primroses are described as ‘floriferous and vigorous’ and they have such beautiful flowers! (Isn’t that word ‘floriferous’ wonderful?) Its a perfect description for this, too. Even though this is a short lived perennial, it would be so lovely to see these blooms in your garden early in the Spring. Until, that is, the aphids, slugs, vine weevil, leaf and bud eelworms, leaf-mining flies and glasshouse red spider mites turn up and the leaf spot, primula brown core and grey molds infect it! Reading through this list has made me doubly glad that I have left the care of this gorgeous plant to more capable and less stressed gardeners than I, who will be much more able to deal with those pests and diseases. I have this memory that cannot be attacked by any of those and I can share today with all of you. Enjoy its virtual beauty, my friends. A Flower a Day #221
