I got this in May at the Master Gardener sale. It was in full bloom and just lovely, looking like tiny rosa rugosa.
It only took them 2 nights to climb the stairs to get the blossoms on it. Definitely a window box plant for next year. Beautiful foliage, that the slugs/snails don't crave as much as the blossoms. (White is their favorite color. Ask me how I know.)

A hybrid cultivar with a similar growing habit to one of it's ancestors, Primula vulgaris-Primrose.

Has rosettes of dark green, wrinkled and veined leaves. Bears small, double, white, gives the appearance of tiny rosebuds. Has a very faint scent. This cultivar also has a tendancy for a collar of enlarged leafy bracts sometimes known as 'Jack-in-the-green' in Primulas.

Flowers repeatedly but mainly February to April

Loves a moist but well-drained, leafy, neutral to acid soil in sun to light shade.

The plant is very hardy but the blooms spoil in wet weather.

May be subject to snail and slug damage.
