Primula pauciflora var. pauciflora Few-flowered Shootingstar

Description

The pink-coloured reflexed petals of this lovely native perennial spring wildflower are truly beautiful. This species requires more moisture than its close relative, Broad-leaved Shootingstar. Its typical habitat is moist to seasonally wet meadows and seeps in full sun. Few-flowered Shootingstar is both deer-resistant and pollinator-friendly. We're reminded about the tight evolutionary relationships between plants and bees with this species as it requires the specialized buzz pollination of native bumblebees for its pollination.

Growing From Seed

Growing your own native plants from seed is the most economical way to add natives to your project or home garden. The seeds of native plants have built-in dormancy mechanisms that protect them from germinating before killing frosts or periods of drought.

In cultivation, the successful gardener must become familiar with these conditions to unlock the dormancy mechanism and stimulate germination. We are developing thorough seed germination categories in the Seed Details section above to help you successfully grow the native seed we sell.
