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.

What a shame as the flowers are gorgeous. The slugs also are enjoying the leaves.




Fabulous service


Awesome. Ordered these for my Mum and she was thrilled to bits.! :) Thank you Crocus.

Rosette plants in the autumn garden
