Description

Multiple strong stems carry massed umbels of fragrant reddish-orange flowers, maybe the most attractive and unusual colour and easiest to grow of the candelabra primroses. Although this plant is native to West Yunnan where it grows in moist alpine meadows and along stream sides, it adapts readily to cultivation in the average garden.

Sowing Advice

Primula seeds may be sown in good light conditions at any time onto a loam-based compost, barely cover so that around 50% are still visible. We never use artificial heat, primulas are COOL germinators! As a rule best temperatures are usually between 10 and 15 degrees C. (e.g. a cool greenhouse or northerly window sill) PLEASE NOTE: Temperatures exceeding 15 C can prevent germination, and above 20 C expect very little germination as seeds can go dormant as a protective measure. Germination can take up to 6 weeks, but sometimes takes much longer.
