When I was in school, my favorite professor could rhapsodize about his primrose patch. Now, I love this bright little flower. They are cold-hardy and are out in the nursery with the first of the spring plants. They are cheap and 4 inch pots are less than $2. Sadly, I kill them all the time, because I love to have them in a pot in the house and they don't like it in here, but they are the perfect happy little Valentine flower, so I have to have them inside.
