Buy Primula vialii Vial's primrose / orchid primrose: Spikes of striking, vivid flowers.

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist, humus rich, neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Dense crimson flower spikes open from the base into vivid lilac flowers, like a purple form of red hot poker. This summer-flowering primula will add a splash of colour at the front of a shady border. Although short lived, mass plantings of the erect flower spikes create a spectacular effect and are especially well suited to formal gardens and parterres.

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

These flowered beautifully to begin with but the flowers have now faded and the foliage has yellowed. I am worried that I have planted them in a spot that is too sunny, and am wondering whether to transfer these to pots on a more shady area of the patio in order to give them a fighting chance. What a shame as the flowers are gorgeous. The slugs also are enjoying the leaves.

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-
