Tyra's Garden is a small garden on the island of Resarö situated in the inner part of the archipelago near the small town Vaxholm, outside Stockholm. Tyra's Garden is mostly an ornamental vegetable garden, my potager. But flowers are of course an important ingredience, for beauty and pollination. The climate in these parts is quite demanding as the northerly winds can be strong and cold. THIS BLOG 'Tyra's Garden' is not entirely a gardenblog it contains much more. About me: Enthusiastic amateur gardener and photographer from Vaxholm, Sweden. Designed and built my Greenhouse and Potager in Tyra's Garden 2003. Love the outdoor life, gardening and sailing especially. View my profile

PRIMULA - The First



The First - Primula

A bit pale from the tough winter and the lack of bright light...

Who isn't ? I am!

"Primula (pronounced /ˈprɪmjʊlə/)[1] is a genus of 400–500 species of low-growing herbs in the family Primulaceae. They include primrose, auricula, cowslip and oxlip. Many species are grown for their ornamental flowers. They are native to the temperate Northern Hemisphere, south into tropical mountains in Ethiopia, Indonesia and New Guinea, and in temperate southern South America.Perennial primulas bloom mostly during the spring; their flowers can be purple, yellow, red, pink, or white. Generally, they prefer filtered sunlight. Many species are adapted to alpine climates." Primula wikipedia


This is the first Primula Auricula for the season, this little fellow is planted in a pot and has been in the greenhouse the whole cold winter and now in late March it's in floribus.





Family: Primulaceae    Genus: Primula    Species: P. auricula

How beautiful Tyra. I love primulas. I have a denticulata that is struggling because of our snow and cold but still trying to bloom thru it all. I know spring will get here sooner or later ~ I just wish it were sooner. :-)

Det är nå´t visst med de allra första blommorna på våren i trädgården eller i växthuset! Tänk också den första tussilagon eller blåsippan ute i naturen, de är så vackra!
En skön fredag önskar Eva Linnea

Randi said...

Så ljuvligt, Tyra. Visst är det underbart att få njuta av både egna och andras förstlingar!
Önskar dig en riktigt skön helg i vårens tecken!
Kram Randi

PS. Pappa berättade att de fortfarande har is i viken, hoppas det smälter hos er nu!

Lillebeth said...

It is a beautiful flower. Auriculas have great charm.

Cecilia Artista said...

Härligt med de första vårblommorna! Fina bilder har du tagit på dem också!
Trevlig helg!

fairegarden said...

Oh it is so beautiful, Tyra! I have tried to get these to germinate, it appears seeds are the only way we can get them in the US. I have one tiny seedling, you need a magnifying glass to see it, and it could die at any moment. I love seeing yours! :-)

Heisann!


Disse er vel bare vakre. Hadde aldri ikke kunnet gå forbi uten å få med meg en hjem!
Ha ei fin uke!

Anette said...

En liten sötnos och efterlängtad förstås. Som alla andra vårblommor! Det är så skönt nu när snön försvinner och det börjar kika fram lite vårlökar. Trevlig helg. /Anette

Glädjekällan said...

Fantastiskt att den klarat vintern och kommer med blommor. Mina aurikler står planterade i grönsakslandet, på landet. Sist jag var där var allt snötäckt.
Kanske har några tinat fram till helgen.
Ha det gott
Birgitta

Mia said...

Dom är så söta. Jag fick aurikler av en granne när jag flyttade hit till Norge. Då visste jag inte vad det var, hade aldrig sett dom förr, nästan så jag trodde det var ett norskt 'ogräs'. Men charmerande såna då :)

Gardening Made Easy said...
