Family: Primula (Primulaceae)
Hardy to Zone 9 to 11, otherwise grown as an annual, 90 days to flowers.
(Cure-All, Poor-Man’s Weatherglass) Self-seeding perennial or annual growing to only 4 inches–a very prostrate herb with bright scarlet flowers that smile forth in the sun and become shy when the clouds appear. Traditional usage (TWM): warts, external cleansing. Source of saponins. Plant prefers full sun and regular garden soil or will even grow in waste places. Sow in the fall and overwinter for an early spring show of flowers, or sow directly in the garden in the spring and thin to about 6 inches apart. The plant is best grown in-situ and is difficult to successfully transplant.
