The Orchide Primula is a spring bloomer. The red buttons are a feast for the eyes. Later in the season, the red buds bloom and form beautiful lilac flowers. The open spikes are attractive to butterflies and bumblebees.

This plant can be used in rock gardens and as a border for large perennial groups of plants. They can stand in the sun, partial shade or complete shade. So there is always a place in your garden for this particularly beautiful plant. The soil should be well permeable and certainly not too wet in winter.

Cover the Orchid Primula a little during the winter months with leaves from the garden. The plant will die in winter and sprout again in spring. Just before sprouting, the old foliage can be cut or removed.

Combine the planting of the Orchid Primula with hanging a butterfly box and you will see that there will be considerably more butterflies in your garden.
