Primula veris Sunset Shades

Hybrid Cowslip Primrose

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.445.380

Cowslips are native to Europe, much-loved wildflowers that grow in damp meadows. This hybrid strain features large heads of nodding flowers in shades of yellow, orange and red, including bicolors. These are easy to please in any moist area with protection from hot afternoon sun. Fragrant, and great for cutting. Clumps may be easily divided in early fall. Superb with late-blooming tulips and other spring bulbs.
