Answer: Primrose thrives in moist, acidic soil. They also enjoy weather a bit on the cool side, they aren't particularly fond of sweltering summers (they wilt very easily....I am in zone 6 and have a hard time with them). You can bet they are "babied" at Callaway! But, don't let me discourage you. If you like them that much by all means, give them a shot. You will have to "baby" them a bit. Try growing them in a shady spot in your yard where there is good air circulation. Be sure to water them well during those hot Alabama summer days. You can get seeds from Burpee at 1-800-888-1447. They have a Jewel Mix I bet you would like, has red, yellow, purple, pink, white.
