Primula ‘Guinevere’

English Primrose

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.445.490

This is an exceptionally beautiful Primrose. Plants produce a low clump of unusual bronzy-green leaves, setting off the pale pink flowers beautifully. This is easy to grow, and puts on a tremendous show in the spring garden. Choose a moist, shady spot free from vigorous tree roots. Primroses combine well with other shade-loving plants, such as Hostas or ferns. To maintain plant vigour, divide these very two years or so, in late summer. Will tolerate full sun in cool summer regions, provided with a constantly moist site.
