Primula Vialii is a fascinating plant you should add to your garden if you want to add some color. It has unusual spires of tiny pinkish-purple flowers that have red at the top of the spike when in bud. Thess flowers are borne on stout stems that rise above rosettes of spear-shaped, light green leaves. These rocket shaped spikes are long-lasting & look great when planted in groups. This plant will grow between 12 - 18 inches tall & loves part shade. It can be grown in full sun if it’s in cool summer areas & the soil remains moist. This hardy plant is easy to grow, & wet soil tolerant, & you can mulch it to help maintain the soil moisture & keep the roots cool. It is native to moist mountain areas in Chinaand will bloom from early to mid-summer. These plants will attract hummingbirds, butterflies & bees to your garden while being resistant to deer & rabbits. They are great for cut flowers, beds, borders, containers, bog gardens, & rock gardens. These plants are also self-seeding & low maintenance, which is always good for the busy gardener. 25+ seed per pack Planting Zone: 5 - 8 Part Shade Height: 12 inches - 18 inches Width: 9 inches - 12 inches Attracts Hummingbirds, Butterflies & Bees Resistant to Deer & Rabbit Great cut flowers Origin: China Sowing Advice from a great English Nursery Primula seeds may be sown in good light conditions at any time onto a loam-based compost, barely cover so that around 50% are still visible. We never use artificial heat, primulas are COOL germinators! As a rule best temperatures are usually between 10 & 15 degrees C. (e.g. a cool greenhouse or northerly window sill) PLEASE NOTE: Temperatures exceeding 15 C can prevent germination, & above 20 C expect very little germination as seeds can go dormant as a protective measure. Germination can take up to 6 weeks, but sometimes takes much longer. I urge anyone buying seed to do their homework on germination, I have not raised & cannot raise many of these plants as I am sub-tropics here in St Augustine,Florida. All seed are NOT alike! There are so many different factors in germination & not doing a search is throwing your money away. I want everyone to be successful when growing your flowers from seed it is the most rewarding experience in Gardening & you can do it, if you give the seed what it needs to grow. I always check 3 sites of info to choose how I will go about it. It is not hard to do, if you do it right! SEED GERMINATION TIP ONLY GERMINATE A SMALL PORTION AT A TIME. DON’T PUT ALL YOUR MONKEYS in A BARREL. Good Luck & Happy Planting Primula Vialii Seed
