Parry's Primrose

Parry's Primrose is a mountain streamside perennial to 2 ft. tall with a profusion of bright magenta flowers in summer. The flowers are barely scented but the leaves have a powerful, long-lasting sweet to stinky scent even when dried, a scent that some don't like. Partial shade, moist soil or right in your pond. Sow seed in fall or stratify 1 month and sow in spring. Zones 2-6.
