Primula japonica “Miller’s Crimson”

£3.50

This is a lovely candelabra primula, grown from seed collected here at Lewis Cottage. We find they look great planted in groups and they produce semi-evergreen rosettes of leaves, from the middle of which appear upright spikes of crimson flowers in Spring and early Summer. The foliage remains above ground in all but severe conditions, so do not cut them back in autumn. However plants may be tidied up in spring to remove the worst old foliage to make way for fresh new growth in spring, if wished. Ideal conditions are partial shade in rich, moist soil

Position: Dappled shade
Soil: Any rich moist soil
Rate of growth: Moderate
Flowering period: Spring – early summer
Hardiness: Hardy
Pot size: 9cm
Eventual height and spread: 2ft x 1ft
