Primrose is one of the earliest spring flowers in Europe. In Old French or medieval Latin "primrose" means "first rose". Easy to grow in humus-rich soil in partial shade to full sun primrose can be used to cover the ground in open woods. Perfect for the edge of the woodland garden. Be careful not to plant too deeply as it will result in crown rot. Attracts Birds and/or Butterflies and is bee friendly. (Primula acaulis)
