Primula vialii 'Miracle'

Orchid Primrose

Native to China, Primula vialii is found growing in damp sites and light woodland. 

It can be grown in partial shade and does especially well alongside streams or ponds, but can also be grown in open sites providing the soil is moist. 

The stout stems are up to 40 cm tall, topped with spires of numerous, tiny, pinkish-purple flowers, which are red at the top of the spike when in bud. 

The flowers open from June to August. The leaves are erect, spear-shaped, softly hairy, and up to 30 cm long. The flower spikes are reminiscent of miniature red hot pokers and are a delightful addition to any moist area.
