Primula bulleyana

Primrose

This is a lovely candelabra Primula with semi-evergreen rosettes of leaves, from the middle of which appear upright 20'' spikes of flowers in crimson fading to orange in summer. Flowers are arranged in clumps of tiers on the stem. The foliage remains above ground in all but severe conditions, so do not cut back in autumn. However plants may be tidied up in spring. Like it moist, excellent at pondside.
