The Ladybird™ Lemonade Texas Primrose calls the American southwest home, so it can easily handle the heat of USDA growing zones 8, 9, and 10. Thin, green foliage is overshadowed by vibrant yellow flowers that, with age, will fade to include tones of peach and pink. Expect plenty of flowers throughout the spring and summer on this mounding plant that can trail up to 12 inches. Once established, the Calylophus is very low maintenance and thrives with a slight amount of neglect.

This plant flourishes in just about any type of planting and is an excellent option for borders, edging, landscape, mass planting, and containers. Primrose plants have slight trailing tendencies, making for an excellent addition to planters and hanging baskets. The Ladybird™ Lemonade Texas Primrose is very well suited to the conditions of the southwest, as it is heat- and drought-tolerant while also being deer-resistant. This plant is known to attract bees, birds, and butterflies, so it looks lovely and helps support the local habitat.

Ladybird Lemonade Texas Primrose Plant Care

The ideal spot for Primerose will receive at least 6 hours of full sun. The plant has average water needs, so water when the top few inches of the soil is dry. The Ladybird™ Lemonade Texas Primrose is drought-tolerant and prefers low humidity. Use well-draining soil that is neutral to alkaline and has a pH of 6.6-8.5. Primrose is not a very heavy feeder. Fertilize when planting in the spring and again halfway through the summer for plants in the ground. Container plants can be fed once a month.

This plant is rather self-sufficient, and established plants need very little care. Deadheading or removing spent flowers is unnecessary, but doing so can maintain a clean appearance. The plant may appear leggy or scraggly halfway through the growing season, and a quick trim can solve this problem. Prune no more than ⅓ of the plant and follow up with a feeding to promote new growth and blooms.

Ladybird Lemonade Texas Primrose Plant Spacing

This Primrose is a mounding trailing plant that will grow to about 4 to 8 inches tall and spread out over 12 to 20 inches. Leave 8 to 12 inches around each plant, so it will have room to grow and fill in. When used as a container plant, include 2 to 3 plants in a 12-inch pot.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
