Primroses come in shades of amethyst, gold, garnet, sapphire, and pink tourmaline; some are even edged with silver. Yet for all their beauty, not even frost and rain can hurt them.

In mild-winter areas, primroses are on the market from October through early spring. In snowy areas, plants appear in late February or March.

Give bedding plants an application of complete, controlled-release fertilizer every three months or so. For container plants, apply a half-strength liquid fertilizer twice a month.
