Primula Victoriana Silver Lace Black’

Silver-laced Primrose

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.445.310

Silver and Gold-laced Primroses have been grown in gardens for centuries. This strain produces blooms of deep black-brown with a scalloped silver-white edge and a golden eye. Blooms are fragrant with stems just long enough for cutting, appearing in spring. It’s best to plant these where they will be seen, perhaps beside a woodland path. Primroses prefers a moist site with protection from afternoon sun and will not cope well with dry shade conditions. Consider planting alongside a stream or pond, or under the downspout. Slugs are sometimes a problem. Clumps should be divided every 3 to 4 years, immediately after blooming.
