 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.

    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.

    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!
