ORANGE & RED MIX PRIMULA CANDELABRA Bulleyana
Candelabra Primula are unique, in that the form multiple layers of blooms in arrangements, stacked on top of one another! Primula are ideal plants proving color for the garden! This mix includes orange, red and yellow (also see our rainbow mix). Candelbra Pimula are especially valued for the extremely tall stems that are held well above the foliage, the tallest type of primula, and are easily visible among surrounding plants. Primula like cool temperatures, and bloom early in the spring.
Hardiness zones: 5-9
Note: This plant species is known to cause dermatitis in some individuals.
Seeds per pack: 20
Germination: As with many perennials, these seeds can benefit from a period of moist cold to help them break dormancy. This is done by giving them a cold 'winter' period (artificial or natural), and then a warming to simulate 'spring', and time to grow! Here's how this can be done:
Obtain a planting container that has holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Place the seeds on the surface of your growing medium, and water. Place your container in a cold area (but not freezing, perhaps a refrigerator) for 4-6 weeks. Once the cold period is completed, place the container at room temperature for them to germinate. Be sure to keep the soil moist during this entire germination period. Seedlings will sprout a few weeks, or occasionally several months, after the warming period.
If you are planting your seeds in late winter or spring, these seeds can be planted outdoors while it is still cool out (once the ground is workable and unfrozen), to receive the cold period naturally in the garden. It is best to use this method only if you are able to keep the soil moist for the entire germination period. Be sure to label the planting area.
