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 to fast
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Attractive tiers of deep reddish-purple flowers appear on stout, upright stems in late spring and early summer. We think this striking candelabra primula is one of the best forms currently available. It will thrive in the dappled shade of a woodland garden where there is reliable moisture and for maximum impact, should be planted in generous drifts.

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