PrimrosesPrimroses provide prolific clusters of blooms and are ideal for gardeners looking for color in shaded beds.
Botanical Name: Primula
Most Popular Colors: Pale pink, bright pink, mauve.
Blooming Season: Midsummer.
Soil Preferences: Hummus-rich, moist soil.
Climate Preferences: Primroses are winter-hardy, but cannot survive very hot summers. They love moist soil ad cool temperatures.
Sun Exposure: Partial shade - primroses will not bloom if planted in deep shade.
Landscaping Tips: Consider locating primroses near other plants that provide shade - under low-growing trees or shrubs. Or, plant near the home to enjoy bunches of bright colored flowers from your door or window!
Planting: Enrich soil with hummus before planting. Plant primroses at the same depth they were growing in containers, and water thoroughly.
Add compost yearly to fertilize the soil.
• Keep plants well-watered.
