If you are planning to add a touch of color to your garden, there are several plants that you can consider planting.
Of course, planting primroses is the best option that will surely make your garden vibrant. Primroses are basically comprised of two distinct kinds of flowers that appear identical in a superficial way.
The first kind is known as the pin-eyed (female) while the other is thrum-eyed (male). The two kinds of flowers are produced on separate plants.
Take note that primroses are well-known for their creamy-like yellow coloring, but they are now available in different colors so that you can choose the ideal color for your lawn or garden. You can even see different varieties of primroses growing naturally in the deep woodlands or on banks exposed to the sun.
The primrose flowers typically bloom during the early spring and vary in terms of size, form and color. These flowers are ideal for borders, garden beds and even in containers or for naturalizing certain parts of the lawn or lawn. In reality, once these flowers are provided with suitable growing conditions, they can multiply almost on a yearly basis and effectively adding color to your lawn or garden.
The primroses bloom all throughout the summer season in some areas and they will continue all the way until the fall season. Majority of the primrose flowers are polyanthus hybrids that typically vary in color from cream, white, orange, yellow, pink and even red.
You can even find blue and violet primrose flowers if you are lucky. Just take note that these perennial plants like a damp and woodland-like environment thus make sure that you will provide them with one.
If you are going to add primroses to your lawn or garden, it is an easy task since these plants can easily adapt and are quite hardy. You can purchase primrose perennials at any garden center or plant nurseries. Make sure that you will choose primroses that appear healthy with buds that are not yet opened. You can even opt for seeds; just provide an equal combination of sand, soil and peat moss.
They can be grown indoors or outdoors depending on the time of year as well as the climate. Typically, seeds are initially sown indoors during the winter season. The moment the seedlings sprouted their second and third leaves, you can transplant them to your garden. You can even look for cuttings that can also be taken from some primrose varieties during the summer season or simply buy them at the garden centers.
The primroses must be planted in areas that are partly shaded with soil that drains well and combined with organic matter. Allow a space of 6-12 inches when planting them with a depth of 4-6 inches. After planting, water the plants thoroughly. Do not forget to apply a layer of mulch around the plants so that moisture will be retained. Continue to provide your primroses with adequate watering during the summer season, approximately once a week or more during drought, but lessen during the coming of the fall season.
