A favourite for pondside planting, these bog primulas give a marvellous show of flowers through the spring. The drumstick primula, also known as the Himalayan primrose, has a range of colours from white, pink and red to mauve. The flowers are said to be eaten in their native habitat as a salad. They are suited to damp shady areas.  Plant in clumps or drifts for best effect.  Self seeded young plants can be transplanted in spring.
