Primula 'Inverewe' is a hybrid between two of the candelabra primulas, P. pulverulenta and P. cockburniana. As it does not set seed, it can only be propagated by division of plants, and so remains uncommon. It has up to six or seven whorls of bright orange flowers opening in succession up the flower stems. Rosettes of leaves stay green throughout the winter.
Candelabra type with bright orange flowers.
