Red Hot Poker Primrose/Orchid Primrose/Vial’s Primrose

Primrose vialii AGM

Red-tipped pyramids of pink cover the woodland floor when Primula vialii is in flower. This award-winning plant is excellent for late spring and early summer colour.

  • plant in groups
  • in fertile, moisture-retentive, sheltered sites
  • cool and humid conditions
  • in the open or part shade

It emerges late in the season so mark the spot in readiness for the following year.
