|Primula vulgaris cultivar|
The gardener's usual introduction to primulas is with the colourful spring flowering primrose and polyanthus types, along with Primula denticulata and, the now less seen, Primula rosea grandiflora and Primula 'Wanda', which make nice showy pot plants for the garden centres to merchandise. Because most hardy primulas die back to winter buds and such as Primula rosea grandiflora are very small and more suitable for a rock garden, I can only assume that many have been either dug up by accident or even given up for dead when grown in the open garden which has detracted from their popularity.
The next step, particularly for people who have boggy areas or ponds are the Candelabra Section of Primulas, the cultivars of Primula japonica along with Primula florindae from the Sikkimensis Section being the most popular.
