Derived from the Italian primaverola, the name of this genus pays homage to the way its often early blossoms welcome spring. Many of the more than 400 species are at home in the moist climates of England, New Zealand and the Pacific Coast. The selections we offer are cold-hardy, yet will need ample water in warmer locales. Lovely planted en masse, Primroses are ideal for woodland gardens, damp borders, by a pond or streamside.

Hailing from France’s Barnhaven Nursery, this classic well-loved Primula can be cozied alongside fellow shade enthusiasts such as Pulmonaria ‘Benediction’ and Corydalis ‘China Blue’ for a sensational cerulean splash.
