Primula x polyantha

Common Name(s):
Primrose
Category:
Perennials
Comment:

Primulas are one of the first flowers to bloom in the spring, and the name "Primula" means "first." Hybrid primroses require a cool climate, and may not perennialize in the coastal plain, where they can be treated as annuals. Some flowers have contrasting colored "eyes" and some are plain. Great as a container plant on decks and at entrances.
