Primula vialii

Vial’s Primrose

A striking and very fashionable primrose, originally from China, Primula vialii is a rosette-forming, herbaceous perennial with hairy, oblong to lance-shaped, mid-green leaves. Little light violet, bell-shaped flowers open from vivid red buds on conical flower-heads on upright stems, opening from the base upward. Good in drifts for a splash of brilliant colour in bog gardens, or in a partially-shaded border with small ferns and hostas. Vial’s primrose holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
