Beautiful Late Spring Primrose – Primula bulleyana

Primula bulleyana is a species of flowering plant in the family Primulaceae, native to hillsides in China.

In our garden this grows in a place with no direct sunlight, but bright shade most of the day.  The ground stays pretty moist most of the time.  We haven’t ever fertilized this bed.  Weeds are such a problem here that we put bark down.  Slugs don’t seem to like bark so we have not had to bait at all.  Rabbits, deer, elk, squirrels, and chipmunks all seem to leave them alone.   This is really a stunning primula!
