Primula vulgaris 'Sphinx F1 Rose Shades' | 10.5cm Pot

Code: PL9938
Primula vulgaris 'Sphinx F1 Rose Shades' | 10.5cm Pot

A unique Primula sporting rose pink blooms

Widely recognised as the Primrose plant, Primulas will always make a reliable choice for novice gardeners. With some varieties flowering as early as January, it is understandable why the name 'Primula' was selected. Deriving from the Latin term 'Primus', which translates to 'first', Primulas are the perfect plants for ringing in the gradual onset of spring. Aside from offering valued winter interest, Primulas are highly versatile; they will offer a dazzling display when planted en masse, or amongst spring flowering bulbs, and can even be grown in boggy areas. Make sure that you plant your Primula in well-drained soil that receives a moderate amount of sun, and they will reward you with beautiful blooms for the years to come.

About your Plant

Our herbaceous plants are lovingly grown by our trusted nursery, based in England. Each flourishing plant will be dispatched directly to your home.

Please note, your potted plant may not display flowers as soon as it arrives. However, the 'flowering period' box (detailed above), indicates when you can expect flowers to form. Many of our herbaceous perennials also die back in winter, so will have little growth in spring, but grow quickly once sunlight hours improve.

Packaging

Sustainability is one of our priorities, and as such, our perennials and alpines are delivered in environmentally friendly packaging. Aside from being recyclable, they will keep them nice and secure on their journey.

Please see our below guidance on your perennial or alpine's care:

Watering: During your perennial or alpine's first growing season, you should provide them with frequent waterings. Try to also avoid wetting the foliage to reduce the risk of disease.

Deadheading: To promote a long flowering period, you should deadhead any flowers that appear spent. Simply rescind each flower at their base, taking care to not cut other parts of the plant.

Dividing: To really flourish, your perennials can be divided every three to four years. They can be divided when they begin to show less flowers, or appear less healthy in the middle. Make sure to only do so when they aren't currently flowering.
