More Early Blooms

When most of the garden is still in a dormant sleep, primrose awakens with a burst of spring color. There are more than 400 varieties of this showy perennial, ranging in color from crimson red to yellow and white. Buy seedlings at nurseries in the spring and plant them in rich, well-drained soil with partial shade. Yellow varieties have the most fragrant flowers.
