Primula Cortusoides is an unusual Primrose, that needs to have a rich & evenly moist soil in order to succeed. This plant forms a low rosette of leaves that are a medium green color & bears open heads of star-shaped pink blooms. They have a blooming season that ranges from mid to late Spring, can be grown in either full sun or partial shade however if in full sun, a cool Summer region is preferred, & will grow between 8 - 10 inches tall. This plant is perfect for a moist rock garden or beside a stream or pond in light shade. These flowers will attract pollinators to your garden such as Butterflies & Bees while being resistant to Deer & Rabbits. They make great cut flowers, do well in containers, borders, & can be used for edging. These plants may be divided in early Fall every few years if desired. 40+ seed per pack Planting Zone: 3 - 9 Full Sun to Part Shade Height: 8 inches - 10 inches Width: 6 inches - 12 inches Attracts Butterflies & Bees Great for Cut Flowers, Containers, Borders, Edging Deer & Rabbit resistant Origin : from the Urals to 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 Cortusoides Hort Seed
