YOU AND ME Hose-in-Hose Primulas

5.00

This relatively recent development in polyanthus (Primula x polyantha) is still not widely available as seed or plants despite being introduced into the UK in March 2003. ‘YOU and ME’ is the world's first uniform seed raised selection of the Hose-in-Hose flower form. (The sepals of the flower are converted into petaloid tissue, giving the impression of one flower being held inside the other). The name Hose-in-Hose derives from the Elizabethan gentleman's fashion of wearing their stockings (or hose) one inside the other with the outer turned down. The ‘YOU and ME’ polyanthus was developed in the Czech Republic by Otka Plavcova, using lines sourced from Jared Sinclair at Barnhaven primroses in the late 1980's. The plants are extremely frost hardy and produce masses of flowers atop the 12-15cm long scapes. The modified sepals give the impression of more colour in the garden. ‘YOU and ME’ is only available as a mix of colours.
