Primrose flowers are a true sign of spring, and they combine so beautifully with all kinds of flowering bulbs. This is an extremely popular and ancient heirloom variety, bearing magenta-purple flowers that smother the bright green leaves in early spring. Perhaps the toughest Primrose of them all, plants quickly spread to form a large clumps that can be shared with friends and neighbours. Prefers a moist site. Will tolerate full sun in cool summer regions. Keep an eye out for slug damage.
