Primulas of asiatic origin

Included in this selection are those plants of asiatic origin not included with the candelabra primulas. A superb and diverse range of plants , predominantly species with some colour selections. Originating from the mountainous regions of asia, they thrive particularly in the west country, Cumbria and Scotland where they benefit from the high rainfall. Given a little shade they will cope with drier conditions.
