Quantity

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist, humus rich, neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Dense crimson flower spikes open from the base into vivid lilac flowers, like a purple form of red hot poker. This summer-flowering primula will add a splash of colour at the front of a shady border. Although short lived, mass plantings of the erect flower spikes create a spectacular effect and are especially well suited to formal gardens and parterres.

  • Garden care: Divide large clumps after the plant has flowered, preferably during a wet spell.
