Two Native Primroses

Bird's Eye Primroses and Dwarf Canadian Primroses in the nursery.

Back in the winter, I showed a picture of two native primroses, Dwarf Canadian Primrose and Bird’s Eye Primrose, as they got ready for winter. Well, here they are in all their spring flowering glory and it is easy to see their different characters. Bird’s Eye Primrose (Primula laurentiana) has larger flowers and broader leaves, Dwarf Canadian Primrose (P. mistassinica) has delightful miniature proportions. I will have some of both to sell at the Rare and Unusual Plant Sale in Ottawa this Sunday.
