Primula vialii

Primula vialii (Vial's Primrose)

A unique looking primula with spikes of crimson buds that open into pale purple flowers in early to mid-summer. A real favourite here. Likes damp soil in summer but must have free-draining soil in winter to survive. Hardy in right conditions. To 30cm.

Sue's Notes about Primula vialii (Vial's Primrose)

A completely unique looking plant. Always a talking point. Leave some seed heads on which should produce viable seed. Sow in early spring.
