A favourite for pondside planting, this bog primula is a candelabra variety, having successive whorls of beautiful flowers borne on tall stems. Flowers are deep pink to reddish-purple. It provides a marvellous show of flowers through early summer. Primulas are suited to damp shady areas, looking lovely planted by water. Plant in clumps or drifts for best effect. Self seeded young plants can be transplanted in spring.
