This sweet little Fairy Primrose grows 0.4mx0.3m and forms neat clumps of flat, soft, downy leaves with undulating edges. Each rosette sends up a straight leafless stem with up to three tiered whorls of small blossoms with lobed petal tips. Each whorl can have up to a dozen flowers, which may be retained for weeks. This delicate perennial prefers partial sun and moist, humus-rich soil. It is intolerant of summer heat or cold winters and goes dormant when temperatures become too extreme. Fairy Primrose Primula Malacoides is a beautiful perennial that looks best planted in masses or large sweeps.
