Primula auricula medley of hybrids

Auricula Primrose

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.445.150

This is a unique kind of Primrose, totally unlike more commonly grown forms. Leaves are thick and waxy, held in a low evergreen rosette. Clusters of fragrant flowers appear through the spring, in muted shades of yellow, olive, mauve, pink, red and wine, usually with a contrasting eye. Choose a partly shaded site with rich, moist soil. These were extremely popular in Victorian gardens, when tousands of named selections were in existence. Clumps may be divided carefully in early fall.
