The wild primrose plant is also known as the English primrose and scientifically, it is known as Primula vulgaris. This wild flower may be grown in the garden as a bedding plant or along the garden edges.


The wild primrose grows to be about 9 inches tall with a spread of about 12 inches. The wild primrose puts out tight clusters of flowers that may be blue, yellow or purple.


Wild primrose plants are hardy from zones 5 through 8. They prefer moist areas with partial shade. They grow moderately well in sunny areas as long as they are given the moisture that they need.


Propagating wild primroses is a straightforward task. They can be sowed as seeds or they can be divided once the clump of flowers is mature. Divide wild primrose as soon as the flowers drop off.
