Primula vialii 'Miracle'
Also known as Orchid Primrose, Primula vialii is startling, exotic and very beautiful with its unusual pointy peaks of tiny purple flowers.
The buds, akin to red hot pokers in miniature, start off red before opening from the bottom up with tiny purple flowers; the effect when planted en masse is spectacular.
These mad flowers are held on stout stems that stand proud above the light green leaves.
Plants thrive in shady damp environments and bloom in early to mid-summer.
Can be grown in full sun provided the soil is kept moist. Wet soil is tolerated so also a great choice beside streams and ponds.
An excellent cut flower.
