Orange-pink whorls of flowers in a spherical shape with a red centre in April and May.
A perfect plant for a woodland garden, shady border or boggy area.
Happy in heavy, wet soil but will thrive in any spot providing it's not bone-dry. Leave seed pods on if you want to gain new plants.
A favourite of bees and butterflies.
Primula japonica came from Japan in 1871 and has been bred from since.
