Physical Description
Add a Word
The polyanthus primrose produces a stemless rosette of fresh green, tongue-shaped leaves. Short flower stalks arise from the center of the rosette, each bearing a cluster of 1- to 2-inch flowers in a wide array of colors. They may be blue, purple, pink, red, yellow, or white and often with a contrasting central eye. The flower stalks can be up to 1 foot in height, but dwarf varieties, with stalks so short they barely rise above the leaves, are currently more popular. Ease of care: Moderately easy.

General Information

There primroses are a hybrid cross between the cowslip (Primula veris) and the English primrose (Primula vulgaris) bred 300 years ago

Cultivation: Primroses have common cultural needs, namely moist soil and cool growing conditions. They thrive in full sun in cool-summer areas, but usually need partial shade elsewhere. And while they generally need moist soil, most also require good drainage.

Propagation: The plants multiply rapidly and may need to be divided every other year. Division may be done after flowering. The seed germinates in 21 to 30 days. Division is the ideal way to propagate primroses and the only way to maintain specific cultivars. You can also grow primroses from seed, but their need for temperatures between 40 and 50 degrees F (4 to 10 degrees C) during the long period between sowing and the first blooms makes starting plants indoors impractical for most of us.
