(=‘Clone 2326’) This is a unique kind of Primrose, totally unlike more commonly grown forms. Light-green leaves are thick and waxy, forming a low rosette. Slightly taller stems hold clusters of fragrant flowers through the spring months. This selection, part of the Alpine class, has single blooms of deep midnight black-purple with a contrasting white eye. Choose a partly shaded site with rich, moist soil but excellent drainage. Auricula Primroses were extremely popular in Victorian gardens, when hundreds of named selections were in existence. Clumps may be divided carefully after blooming or in early fall. Evergreen.
