An eye-catching primrose developed from a rare find at a nursery in England in 1999. Unusual undulating lobed leaves form a lush rosette with a dashing sparkler-like flower spike that opens deep magenta and then matures to blue-purple with a sunny yellow center. The color is more purple than blue to my eyes but I didn't bestow the name. It blooms for a long time in late winter.
Herbaceous foliage will dry back to the ground in winter. Keep the soil evenly moist in an aspect of filtered woodland light to full shade.
Mature size: 6-12 in T x 8-12 in W
