Look forward to the flowers opening on primrose Zebra plants from big buds, showing off petals in blue-vein striations among a back drop of dark green almost olive leaves. Every flower gives off a soft sweet smell from early March, raising your spirits after the dreary winter.

Growing suggestions:

Put together with other primroses in pastels like primrose Sweet 16 – rose-pink petals surrounding a contrasting yellow centre. If you plant Zebra in containers combine them with small ornamental grasses like black-beard Ophiopogon for welcome colour and texture contrast.

Helpful tip:

Nip off the flowers once they start to fade and age; this promotes new buds for more flowers for displays lasting longer into spring.

How your plants arrive:

Your plants are sent to you as young plants containing a ‘plug’ of soil with roots and some young green stems and leaves. Although they are small plants they are just the right size to get growing fast once you plant them in bigger pots.

Your flower plants will arrive to you in a plastic container with a lid (which acts as a mini-greenhouse) to create an effective humid atmosphere for your young plants to thrive and get a promising start to give you lovely flowers. Your container may come in a box for extra protection when leaving our nursery to arriving at your home.
