Primula sikkimensis is an RHS Award of Garden Merit winner. It is a hardy perennial native to Nepal and China where it grows in great abundance in wet alpine meadows, streamsides and wet glades within the forest zone. It thrives in very wet and cold places, prefers dappled shade, but will grow in sunny locations as long as they are constantly moist to wet, hence it makes a good marginal plant. Primula sikkimensis lives for many years when given a fertile, moist soil rich in organic matter. Over a long period, from early spring to summer, tall stems of Cowlsip like sulphur yellow flowers that have a very sweet fragrance, are produced on upright, tall stems. An excellent and delightful plant. Use in a mixed planting, or in groups where a massed effect can be quite stunning. Can easily be grown in a pot or other container. Use a good quality compost. Feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 5-6 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year. Remember to keep constantly moist and away from hot sunshine.
