This rare plant, not often found in cultivation, comes from Taiwan. It opens its whorls of unusually-coloured, rich pinkish-blue flowers in spring, and as an added interest produces unusual leafy bracts which appear on the flower head amongst the individual flowers! (Section proliferae)
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.
