Primrose surprise

While at my local nursery today (yes, I'm one of those nuts that keep going even during the winter) I came across a colorful display of primroses in the greenhouse. Of course I sniffed each one and settled for a deep yellow which to my nose smells like apricots. Yum! It was a cheap pick me up.
Just thought I'd share for those wanting some winter color for the windowsill along with some fragrance!

RE: Primrose surprise

Hi Robert,
I had no idea these could ever be fragrant. Thanks for letting us know. Such a pretty plant too.

This reminds me, I was at the nursery the other day and tried to sniff for Cyclamens that were fragrant, but alas gave up. The 3 or so dozen pots of Paperwhite Narcissus nearby were just too overpowering.
