Primula ‘Rosetta Red’

Double English Primrose

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.445.920

Double Primroses have been cherished in English cottage gardens for centuries. These nearly became extinct but are now available again, thanks to the miracles of modern laboratory cloning. They are easy to grow, and put on a tremendous show in the spring garden, their double rose-like flowers attracting comments from all who see them. Choose a moist, shady spot free from vigorous tree roots. 'Rosetta Red' has rich, velvety rose-red flowers. These should be divided every couple of years, in early fall.
