Plant of the Moment

Every day we get asked ‘Can you tell me the name of this plant please?’ Of course we are more than happy to help, but there are certain plants in the garden which really seem to stand out. Im hoping to post more often about which plants are the centre of attention as the season continues. So here is the first.


This is Primula vialii – a summer flowering deciduous perennial member of the primula family. It gows to 40 cm high with lanceolate leaves and spikes of light purple flowers opening from red buds. Commonly called the ‘Red Hot Poker’ primula.

You can find it in the Herbaceous Border in the Formal Garden.
