This superb addition to the candelabra primula group opens whorls of yellow-eyed, very bright, rich pink flowers, with a darker pink stripe along each petal. It flowers a valuable week earlier than Primula poissonii, which it resembles, having noticeably larger flowers, but with un-notched petals, on arching, longer pedicels, so the total impact is greater.
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.
