Primula pubescens Exhibition Red


Auricula Primrose

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.446.620


(='Exhibition Rot') This is a unique kind of Primrose, totally unlike more commonly grown forms. The leaves are thick and waxy, held in a low evergreen rosette. Clusters of fragrant flowers appear through the spring, in muted shades cranberry red, with a contrasting bright-yellow eye. Choose a partly shaded site with rich, moist soil. Great in a bright woodland or part-shade rock garden. Tolerates full sun in cool summer regions. Auricula Primroses were extremely popular in Victorian gardens, when hundreds of named selections were in existence. Clumps may be divided in early fall.
