Primrose English Accord Scarlet Primula Vulgaris is a semi-evergreen perennial native to Europe and Asia. Easily grown from Primrose English Accord Scarlet seeds, and also commonly known as Common Primrose and Primula Acaulis, this compact, rosette-forming plant features dark green foliage with tongue-shaped leaves and produces scarlet-red flowers. English Primrose provides early spring color to a garden, and its showy, scented flowers attract butterflies and bees.
Primrose English Accord Scarlet is a long time favorite for cottage gardens, rock and alpine gardens, and pots. Primrose is a superb border plant for shady locations.
