9 X Candelabra Primula plants, garden ready and of flowering size.

Candelabra Primulas are amongst some of the most beautiful classic garden plants. There are many species and even more hybrids and varieties.  All are clump forming and spread by self sown seedlings. The flowers are carried in numerous whorls up strong stems and have a very exotic appearance, but they are all extremely hardy standing many degrees of frost. They have a long flowering season across the range of types offered here extending from late April to the end of June.  Flowering heights range from 60cm (2 feet) to 100 cm (3 feet).  All are tolerant of very heavy wet soils. They associate well with other familiar plants such as Astilbe and Hosta.

Many primulas are tolerant of very wet heavy sticky soils - This candelabra selection will grow well in wet or damp woodland. Also around the edge of ponds and streams.

Plants supplied may vary to those illustrated, but each one will be different, named and labelled. All plants supplied are of mature flowering size. All plants are supplied without compost (compost removed or reduced) thus saving on postage costs. Plants are garden ready for planting or potting.

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. It is very tolerant of the wettest heavy soils; in fact it will thrive under such conditions. Flowering time is May and height at its peak is 60cm (2 feet). 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. The offer is for 8 different (japonica varieties) mature flowering sized plants sent bare-root (compost partially removed).
