This pink Primrose will be sure to perk up your garden with its colourful appearance. Its leaves have a bronze tint to them and in spring, when it flowers, expect to see bright pink to reddish blooms. This is a versatile plant and will work in flowerbeds, and patio pots alike.
The Latin name of this plant, Primus, means first - a reference to the fact that these are the first flowers to appear in spring time.
To see your Primrose thrive, it will need moist, well-drained soil. Droughts are the enemy of the Primrose and they can be described as a fairly thirsty plant. Expect to see it flower from December through to May. This plant is toxic to cats and dogs.
