Parry's Primrose lives in alpine bogs and along streamsides. Its height varies from just 3 inches to 36 inches, depending on its elevation and environment. It is easy to grow from seed and divides easily upon maturity. Give Parry's Primrose constantly moist soil, fertile soil in full sun (cool-summer climates) to partial shade.
