Derived from the Italian primaverola, the name of this genus pays homage to the way its early blossoms welcome the spring. Many of the more than 400 species are at home in the moist climates of England, New Zealand and the Pacific Coast. The species we offer are cold hardy but can do well in warmer climates so long as they have ample soil moisture. Lovely in drifts, try planting them in a woodland garden, by a pond or streamside.
A treasured award-winning woodland perennial that
brings tidings of sunny good cheer to damp shady
nooks, this Himalayan native sends forth stout stems
with 5 to 7 tiered whorls of crimson buds and scented
bright orange-tinged butterscotch-colored flowers.
The marvelous floral regale resides some 20 in. above a clumping semievergreen rosette, featuring red-tinged
basal stalks and large round-tipped, oblong green
leaves. Well-drained humus-rich soil helps maintain Primula
bulleyana's steadfast undemanding stance.
Size: 2' 0" high x 12"–15" wide; hardy to zone 5.
Primula bulleyana (P-0231)
