Precious selection with golden-brown rings.
Availability: Out of stock

-Ready late March 2020- A precious selection forged by John Radford a long time ago in the Midlands. The flowers are composed of 8 rings (golden-brown petals) and a 9th golden ring (center) that binds them all. This gem looks fabulous in front of any Hobbit Hole or the palm of a petrified troll's hand. Very likely grown by Sam, Frodo's gardener (contrary to common belief not his bodyguard, and he wasn't dropping no eaves either...). Fun LOTR fact: Frodo's mother's name was Primula, who, according to criminal investigative work by local Rangers, was drowned by Gollum along with her husband Drogo Baggins.

Grows in most well drained garden soils. Full sun is fine in higher elevation and/or cooler regions, otherwise needs a place without afternoon heat.
