About the product
Unusual whorls of flowers form around the stems to give the effect of a candelabra!
This is a lovely candelabra primula, found growing wild on hillsides in China. It looks great planted in groups and produces semi-evergreen rosettes of leaves, from the middle of which appear upright spikes of flowers in crimson fading to orange in summer. The foliage remains above ground in all but severe conditions, so do not cut back in autumn.
However plants may be tidied up in spring to remove the worst old foliage to make way for fresh new growth in spring, if wished.
