Wild Primrose (Primula Vulgaris)

Wild Primrose (Primula Vulgaris)

Wild Primrose has suffered due to its popularity. It was dug up in the wild and this with a lot of its natural habitats disappearing put it under threat.  Woodlands have been cleared, ditches filled in and hedges pulled down.

This very pretty woodland flower is fighting back and being planted in increasing numbers.

Whilst Primula Vulgaris is traditionally pale yellow you can see sometimes white, pink and mauve coloured ones.






Primroses look their best in a woodland setting. They do quite well in heavy shade

Flowering Season             March to June

Height                                 8 to 150 cm


Whilst you can grow Wild Primrose from seed relatively easily. Getting hold of any seed is difficult. If you have some seed plant it onto seed trays cover the tray with glass and leave it in a  shady spot over winter. The seed will germinate in spring.

The easiest route is to plant Wild Primrose plugs
