Primula ‘Wanda’


English Primrose

Primrose flowers are a true sign of spring, and they combine so beautifully with all kinds of flowering bulbs.

Perhaps the toughest Primrose of them all, plants quickly spread to form a large clumps that can be shared with friends and neighbours. Divide plants every 2 to 3 years in early fall, to maintain their vigour. Prefers a moist site. Will tolerate full sun in cool summer regions. Keep an eye out for slug damage.
