More Information

Description Signal spring with a playful selection of rainbow color primroses! Fun and colorful, the Crescendo® series of primrose is a cross between Primula veris and Primula vulgaris, giving it excellent winter hardiness (perfect for those in cold climates) and better flower color and size compared to other varieties. If you're looking for a plant to make you smile each time it pops up come spring, look no further than this colorful mix of primrose! Dark green, deeply ribbed leaves contrast the bright blooms and add unique texture to containers or large flower beds paired with tulips and pansies. If you're struggling with deer or rabbits nibbling on your plants, you can enjoy this primrose worry-free as they are both deer and rabbit resistant! Enjoy a mix of red, blue, wine, orange, yellow, and white; we offer mixed colors, so you'll be surprised by one of the many lovely hues this plant is known for. Details Botanical name: Primula polyanthus eliator 'Crescendo Mix'
Common name: Primrose, Primula, Oxlip
Zone: 4-7
Sun exposure: Part Sun (4-6 Hours)-Shade (<4 Hours)
Height x width: 6-8" x 6-10"
Flower color: Mix of Red, White, Orange, Yellow, Blue.
Foliage color: Green
Bloom time: Late winter/early spring
Features: Rabbit & deer resistant, ground covers, cold tolerant
Uses: Container gardening, cottage gardening, edging, ground cover, massing, ornamental, woodland
 
How To Grow Soil: Moist, well-drained soil is best. Primroses cannot handle drought for any sustained period; however, their tight, ground-hugging rosettes of leaves can rot if soil is excessively wet or soggy. Rich, dark soils yield the best results.
Light: Partial sun to shade -- Primula will benefit from dappled sun exposure; afternoon shade is imperative in hot summers.
Water: Plants will go dormant in hot, dry summer weather unless they are kept well-watered. Mulching will help the soil retain moisture.
Spacing: 12 inches
Fertilizing: Apply a granular garden fertilizer in early spring if desired.
Winterizing: A good 2-3" layer of shredded bark is recommended. Check plants in late winter and remove any ice or snow lingering in the rosette to minimize the risk of rot.
Maintenance & Pruning: Little to no maintenance is required. Add a layer of mulch to help retain moisture.

Would order again

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!

Less than thrilled

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 claims@greatgardenplants.com, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible.

Happy Gardening!
