Holder of the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM), this beautiful primula blooms in late spring and early summer. Its tiered deep red flowers are held on white mealy stems above the rosette of mid-green leaves. Plants are found growing wild on wet hillsides in China. In this country, it enjoys moist, neutral to acid soil in partial shade. However it will tolerate full sun if the soil is moist enough. To propagate, sow seeds as soon as they are ripe.

Very useful, however another piece of information that would be useful is when to sow the seeds.
A very beautiful and spectacular plant and easy to raise from seed. Collect the seed just as it turning from green to black, usually late September early October and sow immediately with a little bottom heat.
If you time it right all will germinate and you will get hundreds of new plants if you can be bothered to prick them all out. Grow on under cover if you can and mass plant in the spring. They will usually flower the following summer and make much bigger plants the next year
