Primroses are annuals favored in mild winter areas. They're also spectacular additions to other gardens for early spring color during cool weather. The two most popular varieties for gardens are P. x polyantha, which is bred from a number of species with long stems topped by multiple flowers, and P. malacoides, the fairy primrose, which is often grown as a pot plant in the spring._Annual Flower Image Gallery

Primula has about 500 species in traditional treatments, and more if certain related genera are included within its circumscription.
