Belarina Double Primroses

What could be more elegant and delicate looking than these gorgeous primroses? 

It’s hard to believe that they were subjected to frigid temperatures and buried in 18 inches of snow a few short weeks ago.

These are some very hardy, resilient little plants. Just goes to show once again that looks can be deceiving.

Pink Ice blossoms start out blush white and transition into shades of pink. 

Both Pink Ice and Cream produce long lasting double flowers that are sweetly fragrant and displayed over crinkly bright green foliage.

They bloom heavily from early to late spring.

The plants pictured here have been growing along a shady path in my woodland garden for the last five years or so. They’ve been beautiful, dependable, trouble free plants from day one.

They don’t seem to mind cold winters, hot dry summers, or being trampled on by small children and dogs. They have been disease free and untouched by garden pests including deer and rabbits. They’ve even been divided and moved around the garden from time to time with no ill effect.

Add a little ‘Spring Bling’ to your garden with these showy Belarina Primroses!
