Primula x elatior ‘Gold Victoriana’



Gold Lace Black – Clusters of rich russet red-brown petals laced with a golden edge and eye of the bloom. Primula x elatior ‘Victoriana’ blooms have a sweet and spicy fragrance with stems just long enough for cutting, appearing in spring. Prefers a moist site with protection from afternoon sun. A stunning addition to a Deep Shade or Dappled Light spot but will not cope well with dry shade conditions. This old-established cultivar was very popular in Victorian times and is making a comeback. Grows well and lovely in a pot or window box, can be planted in beds or rockeries, edging a path, alongside a stream or pond or under the downspout. Black, gold laced 20cm.
