I love primroses!  I grow a number of kinds here. One is P. vulgaris 'Val
Horncastle' which is a pale yellow double English primrose. It supposed to
be hardy in Zones 4 - 9. Another English double I grow is 'Red Velvet'.
Another with bronze foliage is Primula pruhoniciana x margotae  'Guinevere'.
It has a soft lilac pink flower.
   P. Kisoana  has kind of hairy leaves and has been doing well here for
about five years.

LILLIAN HARVEY  has formed a big clump.  It's another double, but deep rose:
http://www.sunfarm.com/images/primuladoubles/photos/photo_5.html. I bought a
bunch of other types, but I guess I didn't file their labels yet, so they
are buried under the snow!  I have a few unnamed pass-a-long varieties. Some
of these clumps are 20 years old in my garden and came from my aunt who
recently died in her nineties!  Also, I buy them in the supermarket in the
late winter and plant them out doors when they stop flowering.  I have many
of these with me still after more than six years.

Most of my hybrids come from a grower called Heritage Perennials that I
purchase locally. 

Long Island, NY
