CROCHET PATTERNS (Pattern #38 Primula Flower) – 365 Flowers Bouquet Project


Primula is a flowering herbaceous plant blooming mostly in the spring. The word primula comes from the Latin primus meaning first… in other words flowers that are from the first to bloom in the spring.

The variety in Louise’s photograph seems to be a Primula kisoana. It is a woodland species producing clusters of pink flowers with yellow eyes on tall stems. Spring has obviously come to Australia!
