Interesting things in the garden

Drumstick Primula

Noticing a different way of growing...most of the bulb flowers grow their stem with a bud on top which eventually opens.

The drumstick primula was first leaves...then the flowers came and opened like a puffball close to the plant.
This photo was a few days on from the first step.
The flower heads filling out further.

Further along the stems grew...with the flower head on top.

And more opened and grew...staggered in size like an arrangement.
I need to remember to keep track of this!

Never realised drumstick primulas grow like this - that's fascinating! Love your beaded wavy springs. :o)
