How to Grow Primroses

Primroses thrive in partial shade and look perfectly at home when planted in large swaths near a tree. If they have to, they can tolerate full sun, but they'll need more frequent watering to remain cool and moist. 

Primroses are fairly thirsty plants and require regular watering. A good layer of mulch will help retain soil moisture, but they do not like to be constantly soggy. Species types are somewhat more tolerant of wet soils.

Primula species are mildly toxic to humans, earning a class 4 rating (causing dermatitis reactions). They are slightly more toxic to dogs, cats, horses, and other animals, but not dangerously so.
