Shade perennial :: 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. Blooms range in colour from white through shades of pink, violet, blue and purple. Flowers are lightly fragrant, and wonderful for cutting. Plants prefer an evenly moist site, and will even grow well beside a pond or stream.
