so i'm thinking of primrose as this little plant, maybe 6 inches tall, or a foot. Right?? well out in my yard all summer long i have this monster of a plant with really pretty little yellow flowers on it, i can't really place it. so i'm thinking i'll put a pic on gw and see what they say it is, but i think it might be a huge primrose. nah that can't be. so i look it up. they get to be 5' tall. OMGoodness!! this baby is that no problem!! its taller than me, (which isn't saying much!! LOL) and as wide as it is tall!! boy!! i shoulda done my homework on this baby!! **big smile** seems i love the big and bushy plants!! LOL now i just want all the other primroses!! **big smile** ~Medo
