One of my favourite springtime plants, the Florist’s Polyanthus (primrose) Gold Lace Group – beautifully formed, deeply coloured & scalloped petals edged in gold, tall stems and silver buds lifted clear from a collar of ruffled green leaves. Just lovely! A strain kept alive in Lancashire and Cheshire, through the original Florists’ Societies and glad that it has stood the test of time.

A few links below… honestly, you can become quite obsessive –
