THREE VARIETIES OF PRIMROSE:
• Common Primrose- low growing with flowers growing through center. Has dark “eye” color in center
• Fairy Primrose- tiny flowers on tall stems
• Obonica Primroses- tall flower clusters medium sized flowers
IF YOU ARE GROWING THEM INDOORS:
• Cool temperatures indoors (55-65 degrees)
• They do not like heaters or dry air.
• Keep the soil consistently moist
• Bright light but no direct sun
• A plant light will prolong blooms
• Water from below (put water in saucer)
• Water from above by lifting leaves and watering soil directly (trim bottom leaves touching the soils)
• Wet moss and place on soil to create humid environment
MULTIPLING THE FLOWERS:
Primroses grow in clusters that spread. The Easiest and most successful way to multiply primroses are through division. Divide the clusters after they finish blooming like this
1. Remove primrose from pot
2. Divide plant into smaller sections with roots attached
3. Cut top of leaves and trim roots if needed
4. Place in well-draining moist potting soil
HOW LONG WILL BLOOMS LAST?
