I started growing this plant about 3 years ago here in zone 8. Having failed miserably with other Primrose I was skeptical I would have any success with this variety,
I was pleasantly surprised ! ! !
This has been a wonderful plant for me and it grows larger and blooms more each year.
It is planted in shade with bright light and it is thriving. It even survived out dip down in the low single digits last winter.
A winner for zone 8.
