This Primula sieboldii cultivar petal colour is a rich pink, but it “sports” heavily. Sporting cultivars are popular in Japanese collections. Our collection plants are predominantly pale pink sporting, with splashes of the dark pink. We were given a lesson in primula genetics at Chelsea Flower Show in 2018!
Flat, cherry-blossom petals. We obtained this Primula sieboldii cultivar from Japan.
The name translates as “Great Shining Brocade” (Ming Brocade).
