There I was at a local, releatively speaking, nursery minding my own business (like that's ever happened) and what should I spy but a table full of these.
Hort Couture (get it?) is this "Absolute Showstopper" of a primrose called 'Blue Zebra.'
'Pickwick' but without the subtlety of the crocus. It certainly caught my eye but at several times the price of a run of the mill primrose, it didn't catch a ride home with me. This is a new introduction for 2013 so you can be the first on your block to have a bed of 'em.
Again, I digress! Let's forget for now diabetes-causing names like "Pink-A-Boo" and "Glamoflage Grape." What do you think of this new primrose introduction?
