Primrose Flowers

These beautiful plants can produce flowers in colors of red, pink, orange, yellow, purple, blue or white.

They are best suited for borders, containers, or edgings making them extremely versatile for your needs.

Primroses like to have mulch around their roots to keep them cool and need regular watering.


Primrose Care

Primroses are a wonderful addition to any garden and depending on the species can bloom from late winter through fall.

In general, Primroses need:

  • Mulch around their roots
  • Regular watering
  • Full sun in cooler climates, need dappled sunlight or mostly shade in warmer climates.
  • Well composted, well-draining soil.
  • Protection from snails and slugs.
  • To be planted in groupings or as edging underneath large canopied trees like Dogwoods, Maples, Birch, and many other trees.
  • Are great as groupings or interspersed amongst other perennial plants in decorative pots.
