Primula Malacoides Lavender

Fairy Primrose (Primula Malacoides Lavender) - Add these little gems to your garden, and start them from Fairy Primrose seeds! Primula Malacoides, which is also known as Fairy Primrose, blooms early in the season into lavender flowers which reach approximately 1/2 inch wide, on soft hairy stalks. This is a rosette forming, upright, evergreen perennial that is usually grown as an annual in colder zones below USDA zone 8. The pale green leaves have slightly frilly edges and are dainty and oval, to 4 inches long. Fairy Primula are good planted in rock gardens, used as bedding plants and in containers. They also make wonderful flowering house plants with blooms lasting from December to March if the spent flowers are clipped to promote a longer bloom time.

Sow Fairy Primrose seed in starter trays using a "peaty" potting mix. These flower seeds need light for germination, so barely cover Fairy Primrose flower seeds with peat moss. For December and January blooms, sow Primula Malacoides flower seeds in June and July. Keep seeds moist until germination and after as well. Fairy Primrose plants do not like to dry out. In warm conditions, mist spray daily and stand the pot on moist pebbles. Begin to feed when the flower stalks begin to develop and continue to feed at intervals of 14 days until flowering has finished.
