Primula pulverulenta

One of the widest grown candelabras. The flowers are cerise to wine-red, with a dark eye but it's the combination with the powdery stems that makes them such stunning plants. Really tough plants in the garden, we would recommend this candelabra primula as one of the easiest to grow. Subtle perfume.

Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit
