Primula, is a very large genus of around 500 species in the primrose family, Primulaceae. The genus has a wide distribution, but the majority, about half the species, are native to the Himalayas. They grow in varied habitats, some are excellent rock garden plants, while others thrive in deep, fertile soil in semi-shade. The majority is not drought tolerant.

Propagation:


Division in spring or fall.


Seed - sown in January.

Seed not covered and stored at 20°C (68°F) until germination.  If seed hasn't germinated in a month, a cooling period at temps below 4°C (40°C) for 2-4 week could be helpful, before bringing it back to 20°C (68°F) until germination.

Hardy, prefers moist soil.
