Primula vulgaris 'Corporal Baxter' is a superb, long-lived selection of the English primrose that bears huge clusters of fully double, bright red flowers on short stalks that top the basal rosette of green foliage starting in late March (NC). Primula vulgaris 'Corporal Baxter' is another of the best heat- and drought-tolerant primroses in our trials, having thrived in our woodland garden for over a decade. The clumps go dormant in late summer, re-emerging in late winter after a nice rest. Good, well-drained woodland soils have proven perfect planting locations for Primula 'Corporal Baxter'
