This extremely vigorous and hardy candelabra primula thrusts up numerous strong stems bearing bright orange or occasionally red flowers with darker eyes. It does especially well in waterside environments where it will self-seed generously making fabulous clumps!
Primula seeds may be sown at any time onto a loam-based compost, barely cover so that around 50% are still visible. Best germination temperatures are between 10 and 15 degrees C. (e.g. a cool, northerly window sill) PLEASE NOTE: Temperatures exceeding 15 C can prevent germination, and above 20 C expect very little germination as most seeds will go dormant as a protective measure. Germination takes between 3 to 6 weeks, sometimes taking much longer.
