Primroses: a symphony of colors for minimal maintenance!

Primroses: a symphony of colors for minimal maintenance!

It is THE emblematic flower of spring. Perennial and rustic, we forget it completely during the year to rediscover it when it bravely emerges from the gloom of winter. It appears here in a slope, there in the lawn, further in a massif. She likes everywhere and works wonders every time with her soft or deep colors. The primrose is a small "homegrown" flower which, however, has certain congeners from Asia. Whether wild, hybrid or collectible, the primrose is a small, easy-going plant that we would be wrong to do without. The only harm it gives us? That of bending over to pick it and make pretty round bouquets, before slugs or gourmet birds are full of its sweet flowers! Admit that the discomfort is minimal, especially since the varieties are so numerous that everyone should be able to find one to their liking. For that, browse our selection!
