The late flowering Primula kisoana hails from Japan. A crossing of cultures; the title refers to Burns most recorded song probably well aired in Japan.
P. kisoana is easily grown but an uncommon plant of cultivation, preferring a cool moist soil with partial sun through dappled shade. Deeply indented large soft hairy leaves, the hairs more predominant leaf on the reverse side of the leaf and the stalk, than the top side.
A strong flower spike arising to 300mm from the foliage clump bears a multitude of flat faced flowers with rose coloured petals.
