Q. There was a new yellow and purple striped flower shown this year. What is the name and where can I purchase it?


Marilyn, are you thinking of Primula 'Blue Zebra'? This was one of the plants featured at the New Plant Showcase on the show floor of this year's flower show. If you click on this link to Virginia Smith's Inquirer column,

Breeders return to the roots of the PHS Flower Show

you will see a photo.

This is a very popular plant this year. You may want to start with Mostardi's Nursery in Newtown Square (mentioned in the article). If they no longer have it, consult the Hort Couture web site. They have a map you can search for retail outlets of their plants. Hort Couture sells to the trade only, not to the consumer. 

Hope this helps!
