The Q&A Archives: Primroses

Question: Are primroses annuals or perennials? Do you have to pull them up each winter?

Answer: Primroses (Primula) are often planted as early spring annuals and then removed when the weather turns hot; occasionally they will survive the summer and may even survive the winter depending on the variety. There are many perennial varieties of primrose but they can be very difficult to grow in hot (or dry) summer areas so often they end up being treated like annuals.
