A large, spreading perennial Primula from Tibet.

Has large, toothed, ovate, mid-green leaves. Bears tall spikes of tubular, nodding, yellow flowers that have a nutmeg/clove scent.

Flowers mainly June - August.

Loves moist, fertile, neutral to acid soil in sun or light shade.

Positive Weezingreens On Aug 30, 2002, Weezingreens from Seward, AK (Zone 3b) wrote:

Primula florindae has proved to be a hardy perennial in Seward, Alaska. While listed as a bog plant, florindae will grow in any well-drained garden bed in our cool, moist soil. The clustered blossoms have a heady nutmeg-like smell.

P. florindae grows easily from seed. Surface sow to allow light during germination. Germinate at 70 degrees, but lower temp after germination.
