Description

Height x Spread: 45cm x 30cm

Commonly known as Candelabra Primula or Bee's Primrose, Primula beesiana is native to China. A rosette of bright green roughly textured foliage forms at the base of an upright slender stem. This stem bears whorls of yellow eyed bright rose/carmine flowers during late spring and early summer.

Boggy situations such as alongside watercourses or ponds are perfect for this perennial. It looks sensational popping its head out above ferns in a shady area, and also thrives in sunny areas. It does need a sheltered location though.
