Candelabras

These primulas from the high mountain meadows grow up to 1 metre tall with whorls of flowers up the stems. They are usually classified as bog garden primulas or Candelabra primulas. Very hardy and long lived as long as they don’t dry out. They will be happiest in bog garden conditions, pond edges or stream banks. They will also grow well in damp shady borders. Plant them in bold groups or drifts for the best effect or in combination with foliage plants such as ferns and hostas. They will put on a wonderful display in late spring. Be aware that most of the primulas in this group will hybridize so if you want to keep their offspring the same colour you will have to grow them in different parts of the garden.
