Primula (Primrose) PRIM-yew-luh
Primroses have been a vibrant addition to the spring, woodland garden and containers for over a century. The name Primula is derived from the Italian word for spring primavera. An explosion of color in every shade of the rainbow, primroses primarily prefer cooler temperatures and therefore bloom early spring through May. Primroses combine fabulously with spring bulbs, evergreen grasses and dusty miller.
