Product Information



Drumstick Primrose.

Low growing herbaceous perennial with neat rosettes of finely toothed oval leaves.

Stout flower stems are topped with dense balls of tiny lilac blooms which resemble drumsticks and give the plant its common name.

Interest in Primula denticulate has increased in recent years and it is now one the most popular primulas in the garden.

Useful in woodland conditions or in a slightly shaded area of the rock garden.

Can be used to great effect with other primula or can be planted in small groups.

Prefers humus-rich soil and dappled shade.

Originated in the alpine regions of Afghanistan and China but perfectly hardy in the British Isles.

Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

All pictures used are of mature plants in full bloom and may not necessarily reflect the plant at all times of the year.

Dispatched as well grown 3cm x 3cm plug plants which are best grown on in a 9 or 10cm pot for a short time before transplanting to their growing positions.




We ask all our buyers to remember plants are living items and their appearance changes with the seasons.  Please don’t panic if the plant you receive looks different to the image on the website. This is quite normal and not a matter for any worry or concern, it is likely to be in perfect condition for the time of year and just enjoying a well-earned rest before bursting into action for the new season. Particularly in autumn and winter many shrubs will lose their leaves and look rather bare, gaunt and stick-like and from August onwards many perennial plants may not even be showing above the soil.

We want you to be happy with your purchase and all our items are checked and inspected visually before packing. In the unlikely event of a problem please advise us within 48hrs of delivery. Due to the nature of the goods we cannot accept any responsibility for their failure after planting as pests, disease, poor horticultural practice, extremes of weather and many other factors outside our control all take their toll. Goods will only be accepted for return after seller has been informed and given permission for their return.  Refunds will be issued when items are received back in saleable condition within 14 days from original dispatch date. Buyer must pay all return charges except where an item has been dispatched in error.
