Primula Capitata

Primula capitata was initially a bit of an afterthought on my Kevock order this year has turned in to a really nifty looking flower. It seems happy enough in the terracotta pot but I am keeping it on the moist side. The blue is a really nice dark inky colour that contrasts nicely with the frosted stem and buds. The farina on this one is not very prone to washing away in the rain (in contrast to auriculas). I hope I get some seed from this one as I wouldn't mind trying to raise some more of these.
