Outstanding Qualities

Abundant flowers of vivid magenta, each with a petite yellow center, have made Primula 'Wanda' much loved since the early twentieth century. The crispy green leaves, in rosettes about six inches (15cm) across, make a perfect backdrop to the brilliant blooms. Plant en mass to brighten up the early spring garden.
