Primula vulgaris ‘Oakleaf Yellow Picotee’—often referred to as Primrose 'Oakleaf Yellow Picotee', and sometimes as Oakleaf Yellow Picotee Primrose—is a compact primrose best known for its unique and evergreen Oak-like jagged leaves which inspired its name.
This extremely early season bloomer produces an explosion of eye-catching, bright red and sunshine yellow blooms in late winter and throughout early spring!
Super popular as an early season container plant and even as a houseplant! We don't list it as a houseplant; however, because it will likely only bloom once if used in such a way. Most people that use them as houseplants discard them after blooming (or plant them outside).
Vivid flowers tower above foliage atop of long stems.
Primula Primrose Care
It's suggested to give your Primula somewhere between partial sun and partial shade. Not enough light will cause growth issues. We've personally had success growing Primula in full sun, although others have noted issues such as leaf burn.
Attempt to keep its soil moist but not wet. It's also suggested that the soil be well draining.
Primula are known to be average feeders so fertilization is suggested, especially in spring. Our slow release fertilizer is a great option.
