Primrose

This group of perennials (Primula) features hundreds of species of plants with brightly colored whorled blooms borne atop erect stems. Most primrose flower during the spring months, and some are fragrant. These easy-care plants grow in full sun to part shade and thrive in a wide variety of locations, from woodland settings to rock gardens. They do best in areas with cool, humid summers. In hot, dry climates, treat primrose as annuals and grow in part shade. Keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy. USDA Zones: 4 to 8
