A lovely primrose for the back of the bog garden where it will have the opportunity to attain its full height of 36 inches. Its large clusters of soft orange to crimson to yellow flowers are sweetly scented. It is a vigorous, very hardy species that will tolerate soil from moist to waterlogged in sun or shade.
