Most primroses have proven to be short-lived in our garden, and Japanese primrose is no exception. Still, they are quite nice while they're around, so we recently purchased another couple of plants. Maybe these will procreate and give us a self-sown colony. Ideally, it would have cool, moist soil in mostly shade. That's a condition not much found in our garden, so ours will have to make do with part-day sun and occasional droughty times. We'll see how they fare.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
