Primula sieboldii Barnhaven hybrids - Plant collection

Our selection of 6 different Barnhaven hybrids of Primula sieboldii. Plants will vary according to availability and will be chosen from our 18 different strains, but we will ensure a variety of colours and forms.

These dainty Japanese primroses will look lovely in a container by a shady back door or plant them in a shady area under rhododendrons or magnolias where they will give a lovely display.  They do not like lime so will do better in slightly acidic well-drained enriched soil or if planting in pots use an ericaceous compost.  Bear in mind that they lose their leaves in late summer and will not reappear until mid-spring so don't weed too vigorously. Can be divided every couple of years.  When they are happy they will spread delightfully through your borders on their 'caterpillar' like roots. 

Please see our Culture pages for more information.
