|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|“Primula Wanda” is the name of this photograph and it was taken today at Memorial University’s Botanical Gardens. This colorful and beautiful flower immediately captured my attention. Some characteristics include: |
Best grown in organically rich, consistently moist, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Although plants will tolerate full sun in cool summer climates, they require shady conditions with uniformly moist soils.
Wanda’ is an early-blooming Juliana (Pruhonicensis) hybrid primrose that features circular, 5-lobed, intense red to purple flowers with yellow eyes. Flowers appear in clusters (umbels) on 3-4” tall stems rising up in April from a basal rosette of bright green leaves.
This plant is a brightly attractive harbinger of spring that grows well in shady locations including border fronts, rock gardens, and shade or woodland gardens. It may be an effective edger. Also may be grown in pots.
This photograph was slightly cropped; level adjusted, framed and saved as a JPEG.
