One-sided clusters of deepest, darkest ruby red are carried on strong stems above vigorous clumps of shiny, jagged-toothed leaves. This lovely plant comes from very high up, sometimes over 12,000 feet, in the mountains of Szechwan and Yunnan in China.
Sowing advice: Primula seeds may be sown at any time onto a loam-based compost, barely cover so that around 50% are still visible. Best germination temperatures are between 10 and 15 degrees C. (e.g. a cool, northerly window sill) PLEASE NOTE: Temperatures exceeding 15 C can prevent germination, and above 20 C expect very little germination as most seeds will go dormant as a protective measure. Germination takes between 3 to 6 weeks, sometimes taking much longer.
