Primroses in the Garden

December 27th, 2008

One of the first flowers I bought and planted in the gardens here at Chiot’s Run were primroses. That was 7 years ago this coming spring. Most of them stopped coming back after a few years, but I have one that has never failed me. It is the one of the first flowers to bloom each spring and it reblooms in the fall so it’s also one of the last flowers blooming in the gardens. I always love to see the little pink buds forming.
In the spring they bloom with a flush of blooms, so many that you can’t even see the leaves of the plant.
In the fall they bloom again and the blooms often hang on until after the first snowfall.
Do you have primroses in your gardens? Or a plant that has never failed you?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
