Rather resembling Primula beesiana, this plant opens its fuchsia-coloured flowers on strong stems that can be up to nearly 3 feet tall. It prefers moist to even wet soil for extreme growth and is native to high, wet meadows and the sides of streams in Yunnan and Burma.
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 as cold and natural day to day fluctuations can help germination, and 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 often go dormant as a protective measure. Germination takes between 3 to 6 weeks, sometimes taking much longer.
