Primula Obsidian

This primrose has a distinct dark foliage that creates a striking contrast in any garden. The dark leaves refer to the name Obsidian, which means dark volcanic glass. This primrose is hardy and survives down to -10 degrees and even lower. 

Obsidian not only has a luxurious look but is also super uniform in flowering, both within colours and across colours which is an advantage for the grower. Easily programmable cultivation is possible with a natural compact growth habit.

With Primula Obsidian, you can add a touch of sophistication to your garden while enjoying the durability and reliability of a hardy primrose. This makes it a save choice for growers and consumers with a longer selling period from winter to early spring.
