I'm groovy as a movie with primrose FLOWERS but those un-dainty leaves look so much like discarded lettuce or cabbage leaves! Of course, the last time I tried them was 20 years ago and I didn't know you could interplant them with something else to conceal the offending foliage if you didn't like it all summer and fall. Furthermore, in my zone, if I find a good shady spot, my pansies frequently revive in the fall. But in other people's yards, I love them both. Great article!

Thanks for adding your experiences with both! ( I almost referred to primrose leaves as lettuce-y, but took that out) Hm, maybe something that also likes shade but would give a light coverage to the primrose plants, without taking too much moisture away...As I said, I am about to start on the learning curve on primroses.
But I just found some pansies going on clearance already here.
