Primula

Primroses are a huge, diverse genus, one of the very few groups of hardy perennials that can boast flowers in every color of the rainbow. Far too many people only know the ones with huge flowers in bright primary colors that show up in the grocery store and miss out on all the fun to be had with this genus. Many of the species prefer cool, moist conditions, but there are quite a few that can take heat and dry either by going dormant in the summer, or just growing and even sometimes blooming right through the heat the way the allionii, auriculas, and xpubescens do.

Primula sieboldii

Primula sieboldii

An elegant member of the cortusoides group from Japan and the surrounding mainland, sieboldii is hardy, and one of the best in its section, lovely in a woodland setting. The Japanese have developed a wonderful range of color forms. They will self-sow, and a woods naturalized with them is a remarkable sight; our plants are from Jim Briggs.____ZONE 5

Primula veris 'Sunset Shades'

Primula veris 'Sunset Shades'

Although colors other than yellow are rare in the wild a few have been found giving rise to a color mix of red, orange and yellow; P. sonchifolia and P. reidii may be cooler, but these are a hell of a lot easier to grow.____ZONE 4

Primula vulgaris BELARINA™ ‘Pink Ice’

Primula vulgaris BELARINA™ ‘Pink Ice’

Delicate shade of palest possible pink painted with splashes of darker pink, exquisitely feminine graceful, colors which bely the sheer vigor and blooming power of this plant. Flowers are produced in SUCH profusion that they can literally obscure the foliage. Absolutely unmatched for sheer flower power Like most primroses, they're happiest in a cool, lightly shaded spot that doesn't dry out, and will perennialize the best if you lift and divide them every few years.
