Here I offer a collection of 8 varieties of the world famous Primula japonica. Plants supplied are of mature flowering size and will flower next season. Plants are supplied without compost to reduce weight thus saving postage cost.

A Japanese import some 130 years ago, Primula japonica is a classic garden plant of easy culture. A very typical candelabra Primula it has striking whorled tiers of rich coloured flowers standing majestically above striking mid-green luxuriant foliage. This collection has 8 distinct colours.

Being the earliest of the candelabras to flower (late April to May) it brings a welcome cheer to the spring bog garden. Primula japonica forms a large clump which is easily divided and will self seed all around given damp dappled conditions. It will grow in full light in the bog garden but given some dappled shade will grow in most situations where the soil remains moist at all times.
