Can anyone please tell me what this lovely plant is called. I grew it from a packet of free seeds and can't remember its name.
can't enlarge that one... someone else will be along shortly...
...oh it's Morina longifolia I think...and very nice too...
Are they primulas? The leaves look like something else, though. Nice plants.
Agree with Salino, Morina longifolia.
Hello All ,
Thanks for taking the time to respond to my dilema. As soon as I read the name it was familiar. If anyone wants seed just let me know.
I could let you have a couple of pounds of it too!
Oh.......... but they are a treat for the eye's.
If you want to collect the seed, remove the whole flowering stems when the first seeds begin to fall and turn them up side down in a bucket and let the seed drop out. Wear gloves to remove the rest, the flowers are VERY prickly.
I just bought a little one of these last week. I can't wait for it to look like that!
