Primula pulverulenta


5 year guarantee
9cm pot £6.99
9cm pot £6.99

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

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

    Forming in tiers on the upright, white-dusted stems in late spring and early summer, the flowers of this moisture-loving perennial are normally a deep reddish purple, with a dark-red or purple eye. A generous drift of this striking candelabra primula looks great in the dappled shade of a woodland garden, and given the right conditions they are easy-to-grow.

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