Even more blooms on the Primula elatior 'Victoriana Laced'-

  6. Beautiful colors and textures! I especially like the Victorian laced primula. it does take some planning and help from mother NAture to have the continuous bloom or periods of evergreen textures in the garden!

    1. Thanks, Jane, I've been gardening here for 20 years so I've had time to gradually add more flowers and fill in holes in the blooming calendar. I enjoyed your artistic seascapes.

    1. Thanks, Sillarit, the Victorian Laced Primula is one of my seedling successes. I don't seem to see the same success from the Primula varieties I started from seed last year.;-(

  12. Hannah,

    Thanks for stopping by. I love the beautiful primroses that you have in your garden. I think the pulmonary a is very similar to one that I have.

    1. Yes, the Pacific Northwest has a climate moderated by the ocean so as long as the prevailing winds come off the Pacific and not down from Canada, we have warmer weather than the Northeastern US for the same latitude.

  16. Hannah I love this idea...As I snap photos I think I will also make sure I note when things are blooming and how the succession of bloom goes.

    1. Thanks Donna, I enjoy trying to fill in the holes in blooming, I've been gardening here for 20 years now so I have lots blooming most of the time except for the winter months. Photos do help to keep track of bloom times.
