Large flowered, ‘Eclipse Blue Rim’ provides a classic tonal triplet of white edged, blue and yellow petalled colour at a time of year when it is needed most. Popular with early pollinating insects, and bearing a delicate scent, this robust and perennial early spring primrose will kickstart the season when planted out in swathes, mixed with other primroses in the Eclipse range, or planted en masse in patio pots with bold yellow and white tulip combinations. Also makes for a glamorous interior pot plant or table centre decoration for a bright but indirectly lit spot.


  • Garden care:
    Plant out in a partially shaded and sheltered position, adding plenty of leaf mould and compost to the planting hole and backfill. Water well until established. Divide large clumps in late spring or early summer after the plant has flowered, preferably during a wet spell.
