Primula

Primrose

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.

Primula vialii partial shade

The pyramidal, Kniphofia-like flowers of this highly unusual Primula are bicolored, with purple at the base and reddish fuchsia at the apex. Perched atop 15 in. stalks and oblong, blunt-tipped green basal foliage, they provide fragrant, fanciful accents either in large drifts or surrounded by Aruncus and Viola ‘Rebecca’.

Size: 12"–15" high x 10" wide; hardy to zone 6.
