  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist, humus-rich, neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Flower colour: reddish-purple
  • Other features: spoon-shaped, mid-green leaves
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Attractive tiers of deep reddish-purple flowers appear on stout, upright stems in late spring and early summer. We think this striking candelabra primula is one of the best forms currently available. It will thrive in the dappled shade of a woodland garden where there is reliable moisture and for maximum impact, should be planted in generous drifts.

  • Garden care: Divide large clumps after the plant has flowered, preferably during a wet spell.

    Comments about Primula japonica 'Miller's Crimson':

    The flowers are so colourful against their green leaves. I would say that they are very different from the Primula seen in the garden centres as the flowers rise fairly high above the plant&certainly provide a lovely strong red flowerin the Spring. They really need to be protected from snails which I forgot to do &therefor lost all three plants,so as I like them so much will have to re-order.They perform well in shade&like to be kept moist.

      I have this planted in a small bog garden adjacent to my pond. The colour is gorgeous and I know the clump will enlarge in size so good value for money. It also flowered for a long time.

        These look great in pots and in the ground. Ordered more after my first three, as was so pleased with them!

        • Q:

          I bought 2 of these in 9cm pots and planted them in a fairly wet soil. This winter I noticed that they had completely disappeared, leaves and all. They have never bloomed as I bought them in the autumn. Is there a chance that they may still come out?

            Hello,

            These plants are deciduous, so do die down completely in the winter. With that in mind, I would give it another 6 weeks or so and you should start to see signs of growth.

        • Q:

          My plants are now forming seed. Is it possible to propagate this plant this way, and if so, how should I go about it?

            A:

            Hello,

            The best way to propagate these plants is by division in spring rather than seeds, as the resulting seedlings may not come 'true to type' (ie the same as the parent).

        Rosette plants in the autumn garden

        Rosettes shine against the bare soil, whether it’s verbascums pulmonarias, orprimroses. Given a tidy in the autumn they will make this time of year look fresher. Pulmonarias will have plenty of time to settle in if planted in the autumn, and the apple-
