Primrose

Primrose+by+Enzie+Shahmiri.jpg

"Prima"  means Spring and what better flower to signify the arrival of Spring than the lovely Primrose, which blooms early in a variety of colors. Primroses flower twice in the year with proper care. The large cluster of flowers grow on short stems, the plant does well in pots. Primrose can also be propagated, just like Violets which means that with a green thumb you can double and triple your investment.

In February the plants can be purchased from nurseries and planted in the garden. From March until June you will notice that no more flowers are appearing. It is best to find half shady spot  and replant the plant there. This will help the plant to develop a nice leaf rosette and become stronger.

From July through August you will notice flowers reappearing. Water them as soon as you notice the soil getting dry. Once the blooms are spend cut them to encourage new growth.

September and October  is a time when the leaves will start to turn yellow. In colder climates you should cover the plant to protect it from frost and to let it rest until the arrival of Spring.
