I love to have a garden that is relaxed and inviting - a cottage garden. But since we live in the high desert of Arizona I am careful to grow plants that don't require too much water and can take the dry early summer and four season climate here.
Every early spring, of course, even the Arizona low-land deserts are covered with native wildflowers and the show is quite spectacular. But in a home garden on a small city sized lot, wildflowers can be challenging to incorporate without a scrappy or weedy look. And often they require quite a bit of water to regularly flourish and reseed on their own.
Enter, the primrose (along with a few other plants I'll tell you about later).
After much experimentation in my mountain garden here in Prescott, Arizona I have come to depend on this wildflower as a reliable and pretty plant to gives me that meadow feel I love without all the hassle.
