I bought 3 of these from Bluestone Nursery last fall and planted them in my garden and they each died over winter. All the other Primula's did great, but this one. This was the only one to be completely brown and have no green at all in spring. The others are all blooming. I don't recommend this plant for zone 5a. It is very windy and cold here with tons of snow. I think it couldn't take all the snow.
