Delicate, heavily fringed violet bells
Availability: In stock

One of my absolute favorites growing up, seeing them on our hikes in the Alps. They often can be spotted blooming right on the edge of where the snow has melted away, hence the common name. This not so obvious primrose relative has delicate, heavily fringed violet bells. The dark green leaves are round, shiny and leathery. Does best in well drained but moist soils, cool sun to half shade.
