Pests in Gardens and Landscapes
Family Primulaceae (Primrose family)
Primroses are perennial plants. In areas with moderate
winter temperatures, primrose may be grown as a winter annual.
Plants form a basal rosette, and flowers generally bloom in
the spring and are often clustered or tiered along the stem.
Flower colors vary and include yellow, white, purple, pink,
red, orange, blue, and brown.
Optimum conditions for growth
Primroses do best in areas with cold winters and
cool summers. In cooler climates, primroses can tolerate full
sun. In hotter areas, they need partial or full shade. Plant
in rich, well-drained soil. An organic mulch placed around
plants can keep roots cool. Most species require regular watering.
