    Hello

    I hope you are all well.

    Could someone please identify this Plant for me?

    I think it is a 'Primula' but am unsure as to which variety.

    Possibly japonica in the Miller's Crimson form.

    Hello @Palustris

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have a few of these plants which all look the same but slightly different colours, would they all be Japanese Primulas?

    Thanks in advance

    Kevin

    P. japonica does come in shades of red through pink to white.

    Hello @Palustris

    Thanks for the reply.

    Having read up on the Primula Japonica it does look as if that is it, especially since it was planted around the Water Feature since it likes water.

    Thanks for your help.

    Pleasure. Harlow Carr used to have a fantastic display of them along the stream.
