Botanical and Common Name: Primula species flowers are also known as Primroses. These Primroses are hardy perennial in a Zone 7. If planted in a Zone 6, they should be in a protected area. Blooms early to late spring and typically have bright, vibrant colored flowers lasting one month indoors. The green, fuzzy looking leaves form in pleasing clumps that serve to show off the primrose flowers nicely. A low growing indoor or outdoor plant usually not over 8 inches in height or 8 inches in width. Bright-diffused light indoors is best. A well-lit location out of direct sun. Moderately moist soil is preferred. Water thoroughly when just the soil surface is dry to touch. Do not let plants stand in water or dry out. Fertilize with Nature's Creations as recommended on the bottle. Primroses like cool temperatures. 60 to 65 degrees during the day and 55 to 60 degrees during the night. Grows best in moist, slightly acidic soil and light shade. Very hot or humid weather is not tolerated well. Easy to maintain and naturalize well when conditions suit them. Primroses don't have serious pest or disease problems although like many shade plants, slugs and snails can sometimes be minor nuisance. Propagation occurs naturally as primrose plants spread slowly by rhizomes in the ground. Simply divide primroses in the late spring after flowering is complete. Primroses have their best season in early spring as one of the first flowering perennials of the year. Summer heat can cause primrose foliage to fade but pruning and watering will see the leaves return full force in the autumn. Well suited to a variety of garden situations and can be used to compliment spring blooming bulbs, in exciting container arrangements, as a natural ground cover for ornamental garden trees, or to provide a bright spot of color to a shady area.
