There are over 500 species of Primrose and many of them can be quite difficult to grow. As a rule, they prefer a slightly shaded location with humus rich soil that never fully dries out. The selections we grow are good garden plants that require relatively little care.

Mealy cowslip falls into the Candelabra Primrose group. It is a long-lived hardy, semi-evergreen beauty with a dusty (mealy) silver-white farina on the stems and flower buds. This is the easiest of the tall primulas to grow. Site it in a moist, shady spot for best results.
