Primula kisoana 'Noushoku'

Primrose

Plant Type:

SHADE PERENNIALS

Primula kisoana 'Noushoku' - Vibrant dark pink flowers are the calling card for this rendition of the Japanese Primrose, a much deeper pink than the normal species. It is otherwise like the straight species. It's very pretty... Leaves are hirsute, rounded and scalloped - quite distinct from other primulas. I can imagine a woodland floor erupting in a mix of the three versions: light pink and dark pink offset by white. What a wonderful tapestry that would make. The worthy Japanese Primrose (are there any unworthy Primula?) even shrugs-off the allelopathic agent, juglans, from Black Walnut Trees. Plant in fertile, moisture-retentive soil sited in dappled to open shade. As is true for many shade loving woodland perennials early morning or very late afternoon sun is okay. Our first batch of these have been imported from Japan. Established pot grown Primula from division.
