Come on, admit it: you've killed 'em, I've killed 'em, we've all killed 'em.
Perky little Primroses are so misunderstood. Each spring, we walk into the stores and there we are greeted by a bright display of these bitsy baby flowering potted plants.
Who can resist such cheery little blossoms?
So, we bring them home, put them in a sunny window and... watch 'em curl up and die.
Primroses can't take the heat. They're winter-hardy, zone 3 perennials who would love you to death if you'd just plant them outdoors in a semi-shady spot.
They happily bloom, in early spring, at the same time as your Daffodils.
