Primula minor is a species that is rarely seen in cultivation, but it is a beautiful, vigorous, small member of the section. It has very narrow (just 6 mm wide) leaves, and short stems with a whorl of wide-open, pink flowers. Each plant rapidly becomes a thicket (up to 20 crowns in 18 months from seed). Flowering is over an extremely long period; some years we have not been without flowers from mid March to at least the end of July.
Long, very narrow leaves and long, thin seed capsules.
