One of the easiest Primrose species to succeed with, performing well in a wide range of climates. Plants form a lush mound or rosette of large green leaves, bearing upright stems with a ball of flowers on the end, beginning in mid spring.
The showy lilac flowers are lightly fragrant, and wonderful for cutting. Plants prefer an evenly moist site, and will even grow well beside a pond or stream. In cool summer climates these will also succeed in full sun, provided with enough moisture. Easily divided in late summer. Zones 3-9. Seeds are small.
