Primula x anisodoxa 'Kevock Surprise'

Primula x anisodoxa 'Kevock Surprise' is an exceptionally good form of a hybrid that arises very rarely in the garden. The name comes from primulas anisodora and helodoxa - both of which have been replaced, but the hybrid name is still valid! Wilsonii flowers late in the season and has very deep red flowers with a yellow eye; prolifera is early, vigorous, and has bright yellow flowers. This hybrid can flower from June to August, and has dark red buds, just like wilsonii, but they open to a rich salmon pin, with a clear yellow eye, and they become paler as they mature. As several whorls of flowers can be open at any one time, there is a surprising range of colour.

Our own hybrid, with yellow-eyed salmon flowers and deep red buds.
