Primula 'Blue Zebra' (or Zebra Blue Primrose) is a semi-evergreen perennial which forms low mounds of dark green leaves, covered in late winter and early spring in clusters of blue-veined flowers. It is happiest in partial shade but will also grow in full sun provided the soil does not dry out in hot weather. Great for containers

f 7.1   1/80 sec. ISO:200  The Waverly Salvia is a photographic challenge because the snapdragon like  flowers are very white and relatively small, but the  purple veined stems are dark.  If I exposed for the flowers, the stems would be too dark, if I exposed for the beautiful veined stem, the white flowers would lack detail.
