Primula vulgaris - shade loving perennial in Zone 5b
Lat Fall 2011, I was able to buy some Primula from plant sale. It was not very flashy, just a small clump. She was planted near the hosta, so she is under the shade of a fence.
She actually survive winter, and not only that, she has flower coming out, looks like red. So, I am just happy - as the hosta are also starting to come up.
