Primroses are most often thought as spring bloomers, but there are some that bloom from late spring well into to mid-summer. I have several later blooming primulas in my garden, including several colors of these candelabra types. I have them in pink shades, dark & light as well as some orange and yellows. The dark pinks have been in the garden in several spots for several years and have naturalized beautifully. The light pinks, yellow and oranges are new in the garden, so I don’t know how they will grow over time.
How they grow: in our yard they grow in areas that have partial sun and very moist soil, almost all year long. I have read that they are often thought of as bog garden plants. We get down to single digits in the winter. They have proven to be very hardy. Like most primroses they can be divided, these are prolifically re-seeding.
