Perennials for color in shady spots.
Colorful, bright, playful perennials, primroses are a delightful addition to any garden - and we've got a great selection to choose from. Native to Europe, where it is a common roadside flower, the primrose adapts easily to a range of climates and soil types. Primrose plants are typically low-maintenance and easy to care for, requiring little but admiration from the gardener.
One of the first perennials to bloom, the primrose's cheerful, vivid colors liven up the landscape in early spring and continue to provide beautiful, bountiful blossoms on into fall. Their ground-hugging rosettes of green foliage are lovely throughout the year, remaining evergreen in most climates. Protect them with a light winter mulch in colder climates. One of the few flowering shade plants, primrose plants are well-suited to areas that receive less sun. Our Hardy English Primrose and Mixed Double Primroses are excellent candidates for shade planting, while our Missouri Evening Primrose will lighten up an area of partial shade with its lemony-yellow flowers. Equally suitable for formal borders and naturalized plantings, primrose plants are available in a wide range of colors and styles. From candy red to lipstick pink, sky blue to indigo, lavender to the deepest royal purple, it's easy to find a primrose that complements your existing plantings. Primrose plants pair well with ferns, hostas, Japanese iris, forget-me-nots and pulmonarias, among others. Perennial flowering shade plants, primroses will continue to provide much-needed burst of color in your shady areas for years to come.
