Evening Primrose (Oenothera Lamarckiana) - What a treasured wildflower that has naturalized throughout the United States. Evening Primrose is easily propagated from flower seed, and it does wonders when planted in a meadow or along a fence line. Oenothera Evening Primrose gets its name because it opens in the late afternoon and stays opened throughout the evening. It has light yellow blooms that measure over 2 inches across, and they have a rich scent that attracts bees, butterflies and birds.

Evening Primrose is an annual wildflower with a fairly short bloom period. Its flowers may be seen in May and June, with the peak being mid-May.They prefer a sunny area with well-drained soil. They are liberal self-sowers, spreading their own flower seed, so after they are done blooming cut back the plants to reduce spreading.

How To Grow Evening Primrose From Seed: To sow Evening Primrose seeds outdoors, prepare weed-free soil and loosen the top 1 - 2 inches. Spread the flower seed and rake them into the soil only lightly covering. Sow Oenothera Primrose seeds in early spring or late fall. Evening Primrose Flower Care: In the spring, before flowering, apply a compost as a fertilizer around the plants. After flowering, cut back the Primrose plants after blooming is done to reduce the spreading.

German Primrose (Primula Obconica Libre Mix) - Free-flowering color that lasts. Striking, flowering pot plant with outstanding appeal.  Flower color intensifies and deepens as plants mature. Cold temperatures are not necessary to initiate flowering, but cooler growing conditions produce a more compact, free-flowering plant.

Primula obconica bears pink, lilac-blue, red or white flowers, 1 to 2 inches wide, occasionally with slightly frilled edges. This is a rosette-forming, upright, evergreen perennial that is usually grown as an annual. Leaves are somewhat coarse, serrated, oval to heart shaped, to 6 inches long. Good in rock gardens, containers and as a bedding plant. In general, primroses like climates with cool summers.

Sow Primrose seeds indoors in late fall or early winter. Use starter trays and a peaty starter mix. Press the Primula seeds into the starter mix but do not cover the flower seeds. Light is beneficial for germination. After the Primrose seedlings get their second or third leaves they can be transplanted to a protected outdoor seedbed or individual pots. Plant out in late winter or early spring. When planting German Primrose into its permanent place, amend the garden soil with plenty of peat moss and use a slow release fertilizer.
