Primula polyanthus "Barnhaven Garnet Cowichans"
Care: Primroses like neutral or slightly acid, well-drained soil, and partial shade.
They like a partially shaded position and large quantities of organic matter. Barnhaven recommends a slope under deciduous trees or northeast facing bed, dividing every two to three years, and feeding with a weak solution high in potash or a tomato fertilizer every 10 days from the time the buds start to form until the first flowers open. Avoid full sun, dry conditions, and a covering of leaves in winter will
help protect the plants during freeze and thaw conditions.
