Primroses - a Flower of Shakespeare
Sunny primroses are colorful flowering plants for cool, bright indoor locations. They can be planted outside after danger of frost and would prefer shaded, moist areas. In the heat of the summer ours often go dormant. A favorite plant of the fairies, primrose is said to attract fairies to the garden. This flower is also thought to have the power to render one invisible to the fae. A cousin to the Cowslip plant referred to in the Bard's writings especially in Mid Summers Nights Dream where it is known as the "Fairies Cup". Giving you a sense of the size of Oberon, the King of Fairies and Titiana, his queen.
