They're easy to grow and low maintenance. They like a little shade with moist soil. Dried primrose can be used to make teas & the young leaves are edible.

It's not all about the roses and flowers (though they're great!). It would be a waste of time to go into the rose garden of life without profusely thanking those who are keeping up with their end of the bargain.
