Clumps of dark, fleshy foliage surround strong stems bearing bunches of golden-eyed, brilliant rose-purple flowers. This gem thrives in wet areas from the subalpine zone to alpine tundra in the Rocky Mountains from Montana to Arizona and New Mexico and is one of the finest of all American primroses. When out of flower they look quite similar to dodecatheon species, to which of course they are distantly related.
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.
