Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

Growing well, getting new leaves but no blooms as of yet
Hello! Thank you for leaving a review. We're happy to hear that your primrose is growing well. Keep in mind that when transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (above ground). It's important for them to develop a robust root system so they can actually absorb the nutrients and water in the soil around them. Then after their root system is more developed they'll invest in their shoots and flower development. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. We hope this helps. Happy Gardening!
I was so looking forward to receiving these, especially since the variety of color was highly touted. The plants are fine. Three out of four are thriving and one straight-out died. But most disappointingly, I received two wine-colored plants and two white ones. Not exactly the “colorful selection of rainbow colors” that were advertised! I prefer the four primroses that I picked up 2/$4 at my local grocery store. They were colors I chose (a rainbow of them!) and are still blossoming like crazy.
Hello! Thank you for leaving us a review. We are sorry to hear that you are disappointed in your flowers. We advertise offering a variety of colors of Mixed Primrose. We do also mention on this product page that, 'you'll be surprised by one of the many lovely hues this plant is known for'. While we do try to pick a variety of plants when the order is processed, if the plant is not blooming when packaged, we have no way of knowing which colors are being placed in your order.
We do offer a 60-day guarantee on all of our plants! If you received your order within that time frame we will gladly refund or replace the dying plant. Please email a photo to email@example.com, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible.
I loved the plants however 2 did not survive, of course one that I lost was red. The other 4 are doing great. I will try again next year.
Beautiful plants still in bloom months later filling in great spots in the garden
