Primroses

Standard

One of my freelance projects takes me to my hometown of Baltimore,Maryland to work at Radebaugh’s Florist and Greenhouses (www.radebaugh.com).  Located in Towson, Md., they are the largest florist and greenhouse operation in all of Baltimore. Their greenhouse boasts some of the most beautifully  cultivated plants you will see. And today’s plant is the Primrose.

Primroses are an English perennial plant that are commonly known as “Prima Rosa”, meaning first rose of the season. They can be used as an indoor/outdoor plant and can withstand temperatures as low as 45 degrees. This beauty needs bright, but not direct, sunlight in humid conditions. Keep the soil moist but not wet, proper drainage is mandatory. Primroses are in season in the early spring to early May.
