In Tennessee, primroses are best grown in part shade; an eastern exposure with early morning sun or dappled shade is ideal. Since primroses prefer a mild winter, a sheltered planting area is recommended to moderate the cycle of alternate freezing and thawing which may kill primroses. They combine particularly well with spring bulbs and other early flowering perennials such as lungwort, rockcress and leopard's-bane. Interplant primroses with annuals to provide summer color. Because they are susceptible to summer drought, plants should be well-watered if rainfall is scarce. Do not lightly sprinkle with water every day. To ensure deep root growth, give a thorough watering once a week.
