Japanese Primrose is a charming herbaceous perennial with its bright flowers in shades of pink and held atop wrinkled, wavy cabbage green leaves. This makes an ideal plant for the wet shaded spots in a garden.
This is an herbaceous perennial which grows to 18”-24”. Leaves are oblong-ovate and have toothed margins. The plants grow in a rosette mound.
