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

This primrose has a distinct dark foliage that creates a striking contrast in any garden. ‘Obsidian Purple’ not only has a luxurious look but is also very uniform in flowering, both within its colour and across colours across the Obsidian range, making for a blanket of royal purple flowers bejewelled with a golden eye when planted in clustered groups.

  • 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.
