Primula auricula Hedi

Auricula Primrose

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.446.500

This is a unique kind of Primrose, totally unlike the more typically grown forms often seen filling racks at grocery stores and garden centers. 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 auricula class, has single blooms consisting of overlapping carmine-pink petals that lighten towards the outside surrounding a light yellow 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. BAVARIAN GAUDI™ series.
