Forming in tiers on the upright, white-dusted stems in late spring and early summer, the flowers of this moisture-loving perennial are normally a deep reddish purple, with a dark-red or purple eye. A generous drift of this striking candelabra primula looks great in the dappled shade of a woodland garden, and given the right conditions they are easy-to-grow.
- Garden care: Divide large clumps after the plant has flowered, preferably during a wet spell.
