Siebold Primrose is one of the prettiest spring woodlanders. Umbels of pink and white flowers are held above a pale rosette of wrinkly, lightly fuzzed leaves. Quickly spreads by seed to form informal drifts, but never becomes invasive. Easy to grow and tolerant of more neglect and drier soils than most of its relatives as it does go summer dormant. Deer resistant.
