It has ornamental foliage and grows best in semi-shade locations. It flourishes in temperatures between 55 and 75F, making it a great choice for outdoor gardens in USDA zones 9-11.

Primulina flowers in the spring and summer months, producing white or off-white flowers. Many varieties feature colorful blooms in shades of blue, lavender, and purple. Primulina is a relatively easy plant to maintain in the garden and requires regular watering.

Primulina is also a great choice for growing in containers, and even in cold regions it can be kept in pots quite easily. It requires a little extra attention when grown in these conditions, and should be kept indoors or in well-drained pots in the winter months. Be sure to keep the soil constantly moist and also to prune the plants back in the winter months. Fertilizing with a diluted liquid fertilizer every other week during the growing season will also help keep the plant healthy.
