Drumstick Primula / Primula denticulata

Nicknamed the drumstick primrose, this variety sends up pompoms of flowers from mid spring to early summer above spoon-shaped, bright green leaves. Erect stems are topped by masses of tiny flowers formed into a ball – giving the appearance of a drumstick.

Colours range from white through to pinks and lavenders.

It prefers a cool, shady spot and can often be found in boggy ground or close to a stream or pond.
