Primula denticulata Ruby (Rubin)

Drumstick Primrose

One of the showiest of the Primrose family, Primula denticulata Ruby is a herbaceous perennial primrose with a ball of tiny, tightly-knit reddish-pink bell flowers.

Primula denticulata are lightly fragrant, early flowering plants making them a good choice for container gardening or at the front of the border in sun or part shade where they can be seen. A very low maintenance plant once established. Clay tolerant.
Attractive to butterflies and deer and rabbit resistant.
