Primula Japonica - Miller’s Crimson also known as Japanese Primrose Miller’s Crimson, Japanese Cowslip Miller’s Crimson, & Candelabra Primrose Miller’s Crimson, is a robust perennial that has attractive whorls of fragrant crimson flowers that have darker eyes. Each stem is stout & will have six whorls that are spaced out at intervals. They rise atop a basal rosette of crinkly leaves that are lettuce-like & a pale green. These are one of the earliest Candelabra Primroses to bloom. This plant is a recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society. It has a blooming season that lasts from late Spring to early Summer, grows best in part shade, & will grow between 12 - 18 inches tall in moist, well- draining soil. Wet soil is tolerated. It thrives in shady, damp environments, & will quickly establish to a good size by self-sowing. These showy flowers will attract pollinators to your garden such as Butterflies & Bees while being resistant to Deer & Rabbits. They are native to Japan & do well in beds & borders in the garden. Another great feature of this plant is that it is low maintenance, which every busy gardener can appreciate! 25+ seed per pack Planting Zone: 4 - 8 Part Shade Height: 12 inches - 18 inches Width: 12 inches - 18 inches Attracts Butterflies & Bees Fragrant Showy Great for Beds, Borders Deer & Rabbit resistant Low Maintenance Origin: Japan 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 Japonica - Millers Crimson Seed
