This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: Full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: Moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: Average to fast
  • Flowering period: January to April
  • Hardiness: Fully hardy

Contrasting beautifully and dramatically with its dark, almost bronze coloured foliage. ‘Obsidian Antique Rose’ sparkles with a radiant, gold-centred eye surrounded by rose-pink petals, each finely etched with darker raspberry veins. A captivating combination that looks stunning in large swathes, or as part of a colourful mix with other primroses in the Obsidian series.

  • Garden care:
    Plant out in a partially shaded and sheltered position, adding plenty of leaf mould and compost to the planting hole and backfill. Water well until established. Divide large clumps in late spring or early summer after the plant has flowered, preferably during a wet spell.
