One of the most free-flowering forms, this cape primrose will usually start to produce its gorgeous flower sprays earlier than most, so it's not unusual for them to first appear in late winter. Then, in the right conditions, 'Falling Stars' will often put on a non-stop display of dainty, sky-blue flowers until November. It comes supplied in a white glazed ceramic pot, which offers an immediate and attractive way to display it in your home.

We’re proud to support our British growers, and having been raised by one of our trusted UK nurseries, this indoor plant has a low carbon footprint, which makes it perfect for an eco-friendly collection or gift.

  • Home care:
    Throughout the growing season, keep them quite well watered, but as they are sensitive to overwatering, allow the compost to get a little dry in between; during this time they should also be fed with a high potash fertiliser. Remove spent flowers as they fade and trim back any old leaves that are past their best. Overwinter on a south or west-facing windowsill and water less often. Repot each spring into a slightly larger, shallow pot filled with fibre-based compost. They can also be used as summer bedding - grow in fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil in partial shade.
